For Johnson.
our magic Johnson
who arrived on our doorstep aged 8 months 8 years ago
How can I be having these magic days?
Dreamy afternoons in the mountain haze
Summer's drifting in
You dance to my guitar
Time's hanging off my skin
And here you are
You must be magic
You must be magic
Magic, magic, you must be magic

I remember winter when you first came by
A bundle of need, a twinkle in your eye
Your crooked smile in your crooked face
You come to stay a while at our place

You must be magic
You must be magic
Magic, magic, you must be magic

Where have you been?
What have you seen?
What do you know?
Can I watch you grow?
Where do you come from?
Where do you belong?
Could it be here?

You must be magic.....
