[Intro]
Am     G    C     F        
. . . . . . . . . . 


[Verse 1]
Am              G            
..Lucidity came slowly
    C                    F
I awoke from dreams of untying a great knot
Am                      G                         C
..It unraveled like a braid into what seemed were thousands
            F                  Dm
Of separate strands of fishing line
            G                  C
Attached to coarse behavior it flowed
          F                  Dm
A calm it urged—what else is here?


[Chorus] 
         G                  C
How’s it feel to be at the center of magic
   Am                  Dm        
To linger in tones and words?
             G                       C                     Am        Dm
I opened the floodgates and found no water, no current, no river, no rush
         G                    C
How’s it feel to stand at the height of your powers
   Am              Dm
To captivate every heart?
                G                        C                        Am
Projecting your visions to strangers who feel it, who listen, who linger on 
      Dm
every word


[Refrain]
Dm   G           C      Am  
..Oh......it’s a rush!......
Dm   G           C      Am
..Oh......it’s a rush!......

[Interlude]
Dm     G         C         Am
..But alone it feels like dying
Dm    G         C     Am
..All alone I feel so much


[Verse 2]
Dm          G           C                Am       
..I want my offering to woo, to calm, to clear, to solve
Dm             G             C
..But the only offering that comes
             Am                      Dm
It calls, it screams—there’s nothing here!


[Chorus]
         G                  C
How’s it feel to be at the center of magic
   Am                  Dm
To linger in tones and words?
             G                       C                     Am        Dm
I opened the floodgates and found no water, no current, no river, no rush!
         G                    C 
How’s it feel to stand at the height of your powers
   Am              Dm 
To captivate every heart?
                G                        C                        Am
Projecting your visions to strangers who feel it, who listen, who linger on 
      Dm
every word
 
[Refrain]
 Dm   G          C      Am  
..Oh......it’s a rush!......
Dm    G          C      Am
..Oh......it’s a rush!......
