~Verse 1~

I'm only 23 for another hour give or take,
I'm a fan or yours and I need a good mistake.
I'm not a sinner or preacher, all I have is Sleight of Hand...
I do magic tricks for all the boys in the band.

~Bridge~

Baby can I be... the rabbit in your hat.
I'd swing if you'd hand me... hand me the bat.

~Chorus~

I'm on the road of least resistance!
I'd rather give up then give in to this.
So promise me only one thing would you...
Just don't ever make me promises... no promises.
... oh no promises.

~Verse 2~

I've never done this before, promises promises.
But I'm enjoying the illusion and the things my body says.
Now you see me, now you don't... oh how well you disappear.
What are you running from? And may I interfere?

~Bridge~

Baby can I be... the rabbit in your hat.
I'd swing if you'd hand me... hand me the bat. (x2)

~Chorus~
I'm on the road of least resistance!
I'd rather give up then give in to this.
So promise me only one thing would you...
Just don't ever make me promises... no promises.
... oh no promises.
