Only Illusion

well, I know you've been feeling deserted
and I know you've been past by
well, don't feel so sad when you're wondering why
it's only illusion we're living

sometimes you feel like you're burning
and other times you think you've run dry
you can't go back and you can't skip forward
it's only illusion we're living

even in love you can't stay there forever
you can keep it for years
'til one dark day it's gone, long gone

well, you might drive a brand new car
or have money that's rolling in more every day
but souls don't take checks and they don't use driveways
it's only illusion we're living

one day, in a lifetime of living
you're gonna wake up to find there's no sky
well, it ain't no trick and it ain't no lie
it's only illusion we're living

even in love you can't stay there forever
you can keep it for years
'til one dark day it's gone, long gone
