Begging the sun not to rise
I promised the moon and all the skies
just so I could stay with you tonight

I have to go back to where I began
to where my dreams are made of sand
and you are so far away

Keep your eyes to the sky
and there you’ll find me

Look out just after the sun set
after everyone is asleep
you’ll see me on my magic carpet
come to take you away with me
leave everything behind
I’ll take care of you if you believe
just take a chance
and step off the ledge with me

You say, you don’t know
please don’t tell me I should leave
hold on tight, honey, don’t close your eyes
together we’ll be free

Keep your eyes to the sun rise
even after I leave

Look out just after the sun set
after everyone is asleep
you’ll see me on my magic carpet
come to take you away with me
leave everything behind
I’ll take care of you if you believe
just take a chance
and step off the ledge with me

I could be of royal blood
or a beggar, poor and weak
it doesn’t matter what I am
only what you see in me
where’s my magic genie?
to give me my one last wish
where’s my magic genie?
all I want is one last kiss

Look out just after the sun set
after everyone is asleep
you’ll see me on my magic carpet
come to take you away with me
leave everything behind
I’ll take care of you if you believe
just take a chance
and step off the ledge with me
