Description

This song is about the process of realizing someone or something wasn't what you thought it was.

ILLUSION

You are a bird I know The kind that looks below

You are a bird that swings down low

You are inside of me

My mind my heart my body

You are a melody singing soft and sweet

Always around me

I was an illusion to ya

you didn’t see me

I was an illusion of freedom you weren’t actually chasing me

Tell me why I want you back

tell me why I want you back

tell me why I want you back

I dream about you

oh I dream about you every night

I am a fish I know

The kind that swims towards light

I am a fish that swims to the water line

At the water line

there’s a bending of sight

there’s a bending of light

There’s a bending of time

You were an illusion weren’t ya

I didn’t see you

You were an illusion of freedom

from myself from myself

tell me why I want you back

tell me why I want you back

Tell me why I want you back

I dream about you

Oh I dream about you

Tell me why I’d make a home

inside your arms if you would plan

to stay (we were an illusion)

Tell me why Id hold your head up higher

than my own if you would stay

(we were an illusion)

I don’t really want you back

I don’t think I want you back

I don’t want it back

It’s time to let it go

It’s time to let it go

It’s time to let it go

It’s time
