The Mirage Of Love

It's all about how much people are willing to deceive themselves and others just so they can feel loved

Love is supposed to be easy, devoid of judgement or tension

But it's a mirage, pretense, an iron wall of deception

Love is nothing more than false images built up over time

The disappointment, compromises and the tears we cry

 

I'm trying to light up our lives

Because the truth is so hard to find

I'm trying to let you see who I am

Because I'm giving light to the blind

 

Tolerance comes second to adoration 

We conform for the sake of a moments peace

Love is not a feeling it's a weapon to wield

Each day we lie until we're part of the deceit

 

We can feel like we connect

We can deceive the feeling of love

We sense deception, we're broken but willing

Because she'd never tolerate me if she knows who I am

Because love is something none of us understand

 

I'm trying to light up our lives

Because the truth is so hard to find

I'm trying to let you see who I am

Because I'm giving light to the blind

 

We surrender to live as second best

We compromise our tastes, our own souls

Or do we condemn ourselves to truth

Wallow in pity, in some void, struggling to console

 

I just want to be who I am

I just want to know who you are

I just want to see if you can believe

That it's worth the best and worst of me 

The End
