Magician - Internally - Lou Reed

    Magician Magician take me upon your wings
    and ... gently roll the clouds away
    I'm sorry so sorry I have no incantations
    only words to help sweep me away

    I want some magic to sweep me away
    I want some magic to sweep me away
    I want to count to five
    turn around and find myself gone
    Fly through the storm
    and wake up in the calm

    Release me from the body
    from this bulk that moves beside me
    Let me leave this body far away
    I'm sick of looking at me
    I hate this painful body
    that disease has slowly worm away

    Magician take my spirit
    inside I'm young and vital
    Inside I'm alive please take me away
    So many things to do - it's too early
    For my life to be ending
    For this body to simply rot away

    I want some magic to keep me alive
    I want a miracle ... I don't want to die
    I'm afraid that if I go to sleep I'll never wake
    I'll no longer exist
    I'll close my eyes and disappear
    and float into the mist

    Somebody ... please hear me
    my hand can't hold a cup of coffee
    My fingers are weak - things just fall away
    Inside I'm young and pretty
    Too many things unfinished
    My very breath taken away

    Doctor you're no magician - and I am no believer
    I need more than faith ... can give me now
    I want to believe in miracles - not just belief in numbers
    I need some magic to take me away

    I want some magic to sweep me away
    Visit on this starlit night
    replace the stars the moon the light - the sun's gone
    Fly me through this storm
    and wake up in the calm ...
    I fly right through this storm
    and ... I ... Wake ... Up ... In ... The ... Calm
