"Magic Man" is a song by the American rock band Heart. The single was released in Canada in June 1975, and in America in 1976 as the second single from the band's debut album Dreamboat Annie. Written by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the song is sung from the viewpoint of a young girl who is being seduced by an older man (referred to as a Magic Man), much to the chagrin of her mother, who calls and begs the girl to come home. In an interview, Ann Wilson revealed the "Magic Man" was her then boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher, and part of the song was an autobiographical tale of the beginnings of their relationship.

Song Lyrics

Cold late night so long ago

When I was not so strong you know

A pretty man came to me

Never seen eyes so blue

You know I could not run away

It seemed we`d seen each other in a dream

It seemed like he knew me

He looked right through me, yeah

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile

"You don`t have to love me and

Let`s get high awhile

But try to understand

Try to understand

Try try try to understand

I`m a magic man."

Winter nights we sang in tune

Played inside the months of moon

Never think of never

Let this spell last forever

Summer lover passed to fall

Tried to realize it all

Mama says she`s worried

Growing up in a hurry, yeah

"Come on home, girl" mama cried on the phone

"Too soon to lose my baby and my girl should be at home!"

"But try to understand, try to understand

Try try try to understand

He`s a magic man, mama, ah ...

He`s a magic man"

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile

"I cast my spell of love on you, a woman from a child!

But try to understand, try to understand, oh ... oh ...

Try to understand

Try try try to understand

He`s a magic man!" oh yeah

Oh, you`ve got the magic hands

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile

"You don`t have to love me and

Let`s get high awhile

But try to understand

Try to understand

Try try try to understand

He`s a magic man." yeah ... oh ...
