Hum mmm oh, hum mm oh yehum

It’s an illusion!


Once again my wings on fire

Flapping round your deadly flames


Walking on the old high wire

Trying to keep myself away

You come walking down your marble stairs

Throwing back your yellow hair

and I want you and I need you

Burt every time you let me near

You leave me feeling such sweet despair

Gong to keep away, keep away



It’s an illusion

To think I can keep away from you

It’s an illusion

Like Eskimoes in Mogadishu

It’s an illusion

This state of independence I”m in

It’s an illusion

Like polar bears in Berlin


When I feel happy, you feel deep

You always go out when I want to sleep

Fire, water, sun and rain

War and peace and night and day

Who can understand

Love’s magic incompatibilities

Going to keep away, keep away



It’s an illusion

It’s just a cheap masquerade

It’s an illusion

Hiding this love I can’t evade

It’s an illusion

Can’t you see through the camouflage?

It’s an illusion

Without you life is a mirage


I’m a foot without a shoe, I’m the fuzz without a clue

I’m a ship without the crew, I’m lost without you

One and one that can’t make two, carrots looking for some stew,

A lawyer with no one to sue, I’m lost without you

I’m the sky that’s lost its blue, I’m the beer that just won’t brew

I’m a stamp that has no glue, I’m lost without you

A hound with no fox to pursue, I’m a cat that’s lost its mew,

A star without an interview, I’m lost without you
