It Was Like Magic - Poem by Robert Rumery

You seemed to always be in trouble,
with society, the world we lived in,
and the law wasn't your best friend in the world,
you were trippin' on everything you could,
get your hands on,

but I knew that would change,
change when I meet you for the first time,
when I saw you walking by me on the streets,
and when you smiled at me,
and when I smiled back,

it was almost like magic,
like both of us were supposed to be walking,
that line,
walking the line together,
like lovers do,

we came from different side of the tracks,
you lived there and I lived here,
in a small town where nothing is ever the same,
and you lived in a big city,
where the rockers run wild,

Chorus: It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,

you asked me what my deal was,
was I the one that would love her,
was I the guy with a heart of gold,
but surely you do know,
the answers to those questions,

because I'm here with you,
holding your hand and trying,
to make you my own,

but you know when we meet,
we couldn't of been farther apart,
we were splitting at the seems,
because of your notorious self-destruction,
your unwillingness to live,

but lovers go through tough-times,
they go through hatred,
and they struggle with each other,
they struggle with the world they live in,

Chorus: It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,

have you ever heard someone tell,
you that you are so beautiful,
that the moon, the sky,
and the stars are jealous,
because of the way you light up the world,

and you must know,
how you light my world,
even when I'm in my darkest hours,
even when I think the world is against,
when it’s so dark and so evil,

I always have the will to go on,
even in my darkest hour,
because I have your love and I have your passion,
and you confidence and you tender lovingness,

Chorus: It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,
It Was Like Magic,

We may argue and say things,
that we don't really mean,
but being with you it taught me,
what real love is,

it taught me how I really felt about you,
I don't want to live my life,
unless it has you in it,
I don't want to ever live without you,
I want to be with you forever,
I want to grow old with you,
I want to be the man that loves you forever,

what I'm trying to say,
is that I'll love you until the end of time,
until the time comes when I must depart,
I will be here with you forever,
