~The magic is true.

Who ever said that pigs couldn't fly
that it didn't rain cats and dogs down from the sky?

That witches weren't real and fairies were make believe
that Santa Claus didn't shimmy down the chimney?

Let it be said and let it be heard
that elephants have wings
and Shamans can transform into birds.

Don't let them take the mystery from you
don't let them tell you what "should" be true.

You make the rules, you light the lights
and if you really look you'll see magic in the night.

Now listen here friend and listen real close
I have seen those witches and I've come face to face with ghosts!

The mystery is real, the magic too
Look close for yourself, you'll find it to be true.
