The Illusion of You

Liner Notes: 

This song is about how when I become infatuated with someone, I'm attracted to the idea of them instead of the person themself.
The demo was recorded on my Android phone.

Lyrics: 

When I see you, I'm drawn to you
There's a cool mystique that you give off
As long as you're there, I like you in my head
My mind is in pink, it should be clear instead

I always tend to perceive you
Through rose coloured glasses
I put you on a pedestal, it seems
You usually come to haunt my dreams

It's not you, it's me
Something I always return to
I'm sitting here contemplating
The illusion of you

I drift away when I'm with you
No harm will come to me
Till I wake up and realise
I'm living in a fantasy

I always tend to perceive you
Through rose coloured glasses
I put you on a pedestal, it seems
You usually come to haunt my dreams

It's not you, it's me
Something I always return to
I'm sitting here contemplating
The illusion of you

I'm sitting here contemplating
The illusion of you

Interesting and dangerous, but don’t we all do this to a point? The hardest part about this pandemic has been the splattering of so many of my illusions - about the world, about myself, about personal freedom. Love the heartfelt expression of this song.

a rare love song that is honest and real. the music is perfect. building on a repititive phrase that increases in
intensity as it unfolds.
