In my life
I've seen sorrow
Heartache and pain
I've been burned by the sunshine
And drowned in pouring rain
Had too many lovers
And enough love
I've been trialed and convicted
For things I'm not guilty of
I was locked in a prison
Till you came and set me free
So how can you say
You're no good for me 
Now that the magic has gone
You just want to walk away
Nothing left to say, anyway
Now that the magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby now, now that the magic is gone 
You know love can be tender
Love can be cruel
It can smile like an angel
While it treats you just like a fool
it captures and haunts you
Until you give in
And it stats the dice against you
in a game you never can win
Just when I was thinking
Maybe luck was here with me
You're telling me it's over
Say it's time for breaking free 
Now that the magic has gone
You just want to walk away
Nothing left to say
Anyway baby
Now that magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby now
Now that the magic has gone 
I won't try to hold you down
My mind tells me let go
But my heart keeps asking how
There's no prices for the loser
Only the winner takes the purse
Some say that love is a blessing
But to me it's just a curse 
Now that the magic has gone
You just want to walk away
Nothing left to say
Ain't it babe
Now that the magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby, now that the magic has gone
Now that the magic has gone
You just want to walk away
Nothing left to say
