1st VERSE:
   Em       DMaj        Em   Dmaj            Em
"I never believed in things that I couldn't see
           DMaj       Em    Dmaj           Em
 I said if I can't feel it then how can it be
DMaj    Em          DMaj        Em    DMaj
 No, no magic could happen to me
           Em    DMaj   Em       DMaj       Em
 And then I saw you, I couldn't believe it,
             DMaj      Em        DMaj       Em
 You took my heart, I couldn't retrieve it,
           DMaj            Em      DMaj
 Said to myself, what's it all about
CMaj                  DMaj
 Now I know there can be no doubt"

CHORUS(Em and DMaj Chords with the same rythm as verse parts):

"You can do magic
 You can have anything that you desire
 Magic, and you know
 You're the one who can put out the fire"

POST-CHORUS(Same chords and rythm):

"You know darn well
 When you cast your spell
                          ~~~~~~~~
e|-------------------19p15--------|

 you will get your way
 When you hypnotize
                       ~~~~~~~~~~~
e|----------------15p12-----------|

with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay".
                                   ~~~~~~~~~
e|------------------------------5h7---------|

(And then, this is heard during the "doo-doos" part; each note
 is for every "doo")
e|-7--5--0--2--3--|--7--5--0--2--3--2---0--|
B|----------------|-------------------3----|

2nd VERSE:

"And when the rain is beatin' upon the window pane
 And when the night it gets so cold,
 When I can't sleep
e|----------------15p12---10h12~~~--|
B|----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------|

 Again you come to me
 I hold you tight, the rain disappears
 Who would believe it
 With a word you dry my tears"

"You know darn well
 When you cast your spell
                             ~~~~~~~

 you will get your way
 When you hypnotize
                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~
e|-----------------15p12------------|

 with your eyes
 A heart of stone can turn to clay"
                                     ~~~~~~~~~
e|--------------------------------5h7---------|

CMaj
"And If I wanted to
Bm                 Em
 I could never be free
   Am                    Bm
 I never believed it was true
     CMaj                 DMaj
 But now it's so clear to me"

 you will get your way
 When you hypnotize
                      ~~~~~~~~~~

 with your eyes
 A heart of stone can turn to clay"
