   Illusion: A Song

Shadows hide in the devil's eyes, so what are they doing in
yours
The stars that hung in auburn skies, they're preachin' all the
more

Chorus:
I think it's all an illusion, a vision in the night
If you would make a journey home, my love would make it right
But time has done its duty and I've swallowed pain and pride
You chose to walk the higher road and something in me died

Life, life life; an illusion I had to believe
It was that illusion you'll never know to wear emotions on
your sleeve

Chorus:
I think it's all an illusion, a vision in the night
If you would make a journey home, my love would make it right
But time has done its duty and I've swallowed pain and pride
You chose to walk the higher road and something in me died

Without you I will still perform for all the world's a stage
My music lives but in love I'll start a brand-new page
The end is near, I hear them call they're knocking at my door
Even still after all the hurt I still want you more

Chorus:
I think it's all an illusion, a vision in the night
If you would make a journey home, my love would make it right
But time has done its duty and I've swallowed pain and pride
You chose to walk the higher road and something in me died
