Do I get lonely at all? No, cause Jamie and Johnny and Jack keep me warm This wasn't my fault I don't cry, God no, I don't cry Could you just leave it alone? You keep haunting my nights You keep asking me twice If I miss you at all And I won't lie, though I try
I'm less afraid of the dark No bright ideas, I keep the lights on Are you wasting my time? And your time, every time? Why you're makin' it hard? I won't show you my cards But you came and you lost Do I want you at all? OK, just a bit, I hate to admit
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
