   Em       DMaj        Em   Dmaj            Em 
"I never believed in things that I couldn't see 
           DMaj       Em    Dmaj           Em
 I said if I can't feel it then how can it be 
DMaj    Em          DMaj        Em    DMaj
 No, no magic could happen to me 
           Em    DMaj   Em       DMaj       Em 
 And then I saw you, I couldn't believe it, 
             DMaj      Em        DMaj       Em
 You took my heart, I couldn't retrieve it, 
           DMaj            Em      DMaj
 Said to myself, what's it all about 
CMaj                  DMaj
 Now I know there can be no doubt" 

CHORUS(Em and DMaj Chords with the same rythm as verse parts):

"You can do magic 
 You can have anything that you desire 
 Magic, and you know 
 You're the one who can put out the fire" 

POST-CHORUS(Same chords and rythm):

"You know darn well 
 When you cast your spell 
                          ~~~~~~~~
e|-------------------19p15--------|

 you will get your way 
 When you hypnotize 
                       ~~~~~~~~~~~
e|----------------15p12-----------|

with your eyes 
A heart of stone can turn to clay". 
                                   ~~~~~~~~~
e|------------------------------5h7---------|

(And then, this is heard during the "doo-doos" part; each note
 is for every "doo") 
e|-7--5--0--2--3--|--7--5--0--2--3--2---0--|
B|----------------|-------------------3----|

2nd VERSE:

"And when the rain is beatin' upon the window pane 
 And when the night it gets so cold, 
 When I can't sleep 
e|----------------15p12---10h12~~~--|
B|----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------|

 Again you come to me 
 I hold you tight, the rain disappears 
 Who would believe it 
 With a word you dry my tears" 

 (Repeat CHORUS part)

"You know darn well 
 When you cast your spell 
                             ~~~~~~~

 you will get your way 
 When you hypnotize
                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~
e|-----------------15p12------------|

 with your eyes 
 A heart of stone can turn to clay" 
                                     ~~~~~~~~~
e|--------------------------------5h7---------|


(Repeat "doo-doos" part)

CMaj
"And If I wanted to 
Bm                 Em
 I could never be free 
   Am                    Bm
 I never believed it was true 
     CMaj                 DMaj
 But now it's so clear to me"

 you will get your way 
 When you hypnotize

 with your eyes 
 A heart of stone can turn to clay"

There are a few note changes. Three notes above which I do not hear. This is the way I hear it. Try it. I think it is right and not so confusing. My correction is below.

TRO:
e|-12--------10--------7~~~--|-7p5----------------------|
B|----12--8-----10--7--------|-----8--5--------5/8--5--|
G|---------------------------|----------------7----------|
D|---------------------------|---------------------------|
