Presto

This song is by Rush and appears on the album Presto (1989) and on the compilation album Retrospective III: 1989–2008 (2009).


If I could wave my magic wand...

I am made from the dust of the stars
And the oceans flow in my veins
Here I hide in the heart of the city
Like a stranger coming out of the rain

The evening plane rises up from the runway
Over constellations of light
I look down into a million houses
And wonder what you're doing tonight

If I could wave my magic wand
I'd make everything all right

I'm not one to believe in magic
But I sometimes have a second sight
I'm not one with a sense of proportion
When my heart still changes overnight

I had a dream of a winter garden
A midnight rendezvous
Silver, blue, and frozen silence
What a fool I was for you

I had a dream of the open water
I was swimming away out to sea
So deep I could never touch bottom
What a fool I used to be

If I could wave my magic wand
I'd set everybody free

I'm not one to believe in magic
Though my memory has a second sight
I'm not one to go pointing my finger
When I radiate more heat than light

Don't ask me, I'm just improvising
My illusion of careless flight
Can't you see my temperature's rising
I radiate more heat than light

Don't ask me I'm just sympathizing
My illusion's a harmless flight
Can't you see my temperature's rising
I radiate more heat than light

I'm not one to believe in magic
But I sometimes have a second sight
I'm not one with a sense of proportion
When my heart still changes overnight

I'm not one to believe in magic
(If I could wave my magic wand...)
Though my memory has a second sight
(I'd make everything all right)
I'm not one to go pointing my finger
(If I could wave my magic wand...)
When I radiate more heat than light
(I'd set everybody free!)
I'm not one to believe in magic
(If I could wave my magic wand...)

I'm not one to believe in magic
