vanishing lyrics – barenaked ladies

a rabbit and a top hat
a handkerchief and ring
with a wave of a wand
he’ll pull your heartstrings

he’s a magician
hoping, wishing
and you’re the one vanishing

isn’t that the necklace
he found behind your ear?
he’s floating upside-down
below a chandelier
wishing he had the power
to make you reappear

he’s a magician
hoping, wishing
and you’re the one vanishing

all the words of love
he longs for you to hear
he whispers them each night
into a lion’s ear
under the stage lights
at the bellagio
he has got your card
but you had to fly home

he’s a magician
hoping, wishing
and you’re the one vanishing

you are vanishing
you are vanishing
you are vanishing
you are vanishing

he’s a magician
hoping, wishing
and you’re the one
you’re the one
you’re the one
you’re the one vanishing

you are vanishing
you are vanishing
you are vanishing
you are vanishing
