Lyrics

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Now we’ve got the magic glass

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
And the magic came to pass

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
And we learned important things

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
Blah, blah, blah, so many things

Both:
And I walked inside her shoes, and I saw the world her way
In just one day (In just one day)
In just one day (In just one day)
In just one day

Ellie: (in Katherine's body, spoken)
Nothing happened

Katherine: (in Ellie's body, spoken)
Try again

Both:
In just one day

Ellie: (in Katherine's body, spoken)
Mom, why isn’t this working?

Katherine: (in Ellie's body, spoken)
I don’t know what to do

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
Now we’ve got the magic glass

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
And the magic came to pass

Katherine: (in Ellie's body)
And we learned important things

Ellie: (in Katherine's body)
Blah, blah, blah, so many things

Both:
And I walked inside her shoes
I saw the world her way

Katherine:
In just one day (Ellie: Just one day)

Ellie:
Just one day (Katherine: In just one day)

Both:
Just one day

(spoken)

Both: In just one day
