Lyrics

Illusions
Verse 1:
Driving through the desert,
Heat rises in waves
While water on the pavement
Shimmers in the haze
Til you get close enough, close enough
Then sure enough, it’s nothing
Just like your love… and other illusions
 
Verse 2:
Like somebody who’s been searching
For all their life
For something they could rely on
And thought they finally got it right 
Til they get close enough, close enough
Then sure enough, it’s nothing
Just like your love… and other illusions
 
Chorus:
‘Cuz your love if you want to call it that
Sticks around just long enough to bring me back
Then with smoke and mirrors and a hankerchief
It disappears almost as if
It never was…that’s your love and other illusions
 
Verse 3:
 
Yeah, you really worked your magic
You made me want you
I thought that I saw something
I could hold onto
Til I got close enough, close enough
Then sure enough, there’s nothing
Yeah that’s your love… and other illusions
Repeat Chorus
Outro:
Just an illusion just a lie, just a game to make me cry
Try to look me in the eye and say it isn’t true
You knew all along that your love was
Just an illusion…
 
Like somebody nearly starving
Just looking for some food
Something out on the horizon
Sures looks good…Til they get close enough
