I remember the look in everyone's eyes

When they'd see us together

They all thought the same thing

That I was your girl & I always hoped I would eventually be

Until I realized you didn't want me

At least not when you could've had me

Such a pretty magician

But just like in your profession

What we had was no more than an illusion

I can still see the look on those girls' faces

You didn't even look their way

Because you were too busy staring at me

It made me feel better than I had in a long time

Such a pretty magician

But just like in your profession

What we had was no more than an illusion

We had so many great nights

And that's what sticks out most in my mind

Maybe because that's what I want to remember

And how I want to remember you

But it doesn't take away from the real truth

Such a pretty magician

But just like in your profession

What we had was no more than an illusion
