Intro: 
(No Chord - Play low Bass note of A )
Its a kind of magic, its a kind of magic, its a kind of magic
    A                    B9
One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal
Dmaj7            A
One golden glance, of what should be (its a kind of magic)
B9                Dmaj7          A
One shaft of light that shows the way, no mortal man can win this day.
B9                   Dmaj7          A
The bell that rings inside your mind, is challenging the doors of time
F#m7          D                  F#m7              E
The waiting seems eternity here, the day will dawn, on sanity
D6             A                                   D           A
Is this a kind of magic, (its a kind of magic), there can be only one
E         G       D                           E
This rage that lasts a thousand years will soon be gone
A                  B9             Dmaj7          A
This flame that burns inside of me, Im hearing secret  harmonies
B9               Dmaj7          A
The bell that rings inside your mind, is challening the doors of time
