A Mirage

It's about someone who is trying to get the one they love to seem them at more than face value/a superficial level, but is having no luck

Darkness precedes me as a reputation

A mirage of combat as a shield in which I prey

In my home I hoped to be saved

I hope to find a depth for salvation

 

I refuse to give up the ghost

See through the veil and love me please

I wish to rest my head in your home

And feel the warmth and love of the host

 

Sinking deeper

I can feel the festering of scars

Love unrequited is left to ruin

It could be so much more

So much more than a mirage

 

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But I’m condemned without you either way

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But everything within me is broken babe

 

Living in a haze of blue, see through me

I’ll try again and leave it all to hope

Love gives me nothing but a rope

Come on baby try again, I beg you to see

 

I’m starting to give up the ghost

Darkness falls and I’m quick to anger

Set fire to the walls of your home

Now feel the warmth and love of your host

 

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But I’m condemned without you either way

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But everything within me is broken babe

 

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But I’m condemned without you either way

Love’s all smoke and mirrors babe

But everything within me is broken babe

The End
