Black Magic

from by Unwoman



(Psst, this track is free, but the whole album can be yours for just $1. Come on, you know you want it.)

This song may as well be about almost anyone I dated or thought about dating in 2011-2012.


If I could save you
I would kiss you
I would run to you
I would fix you

If I could stitch their hearts
I’d collect another
All the lonely boys
I could be their mother

If it was more than the lure
Of a possible fall
I would consider
Breaking it all

But it is merely polar
Opposites attracting
My perfect order
To meet chaos again

Still something pulls me
And I don’t want the blame
This is black magic
I can only lose this game

You ask for what seems simple
And god I love to give
But it’s impossible
You are not mine to save


from The Fires I Started, released August 16, 2012
