You've Got The Magic Back (Holdcroft / Shearer)

About You've Got The Magic Back

A song inspired by the American mythologist Joseph Campbell's phrase "follow your bliss". There's an independent film about Joseph Campbell due to be released in 2011 called Finding Joe. Please note that this song (although praised by the director) does NOT appear in the film, the artwork is used to draw attention to it.

Always believed
Follow your heart
Do what you love
I always thought that it'd be enough



But time slips away
Self doubt starts to prey
Was all the pain
Was it all in vain?



But who knows what's round the bend?
What will be heaven sent?
And if it only requires just one more step
Remember how we, we first met?



Now is the time
It's all falling into place
You're back on the right track
You've got the magic back



Following my bliss
I'm singing like this
I'm back in the groove
Life is on the move



And maybe it's just the honeymoon
But I feel back in tune
I'm back on the beat
Oh I've found my feet



Hold on to your destiny
What will be will be
And if it's all down to fate
You've got to keep going and then just wait



Now is the time
It's all falling into place
You're back on the right track
You've got the magic back



But things aren't always what they seem
I don't know what they mean
And some accidents
Aren't merely coincidence



Now is the time
It's all falling into place
You're back on the right track
You've got the magic back

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.


Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
