Nigel Stonier - Tricks lyrics

It used to be distance, now it’s just miles
She used to gasp; now she just smiles
You used to heal; now you just fix
It used to be magic, now it’s just tricks

You used to inspire her, now you advise
She used to explain; now she justifies
It used to be thrilling, now it’s just kicks
It used to be magic, now it’s just tricks

Now it’s just tricks

And, though it’s a fine line, you know when you’ve crossed it
Your head’s hanging on, but your heart says you’ve lost it
Hard to say when, hard to say how
But you and that girl are different now

It used to be a fairground, now it’s a ride
It used to be talent, now it’s just pride
It used to be answers, now it’s boxes and ticks
It used to be magic, now it’s just tricks

Now it’s just tricks

And, though it’s a fine line, you know when you’ve crossed it
Your head’s hanging on, but your heart says you’ve lost it
Hard to say when, hard to say how
But you and that girl are different now

There used to be history, now there’s DNA
You were Peter Pan, now you’re Dorian Grey
The wall you were building has turned into bricks
It used to be magic, now it’s just tricks

Now it’s just tricks

Now it’s just tricks
