What happens when you start believing your own illusions?
Lover of dreams, dreams of love
Dreams that were meant to die.
We live a lie, you and I.
You and I, we live a lie.
Diamond and gold, silver and pearl.
Little joys I had to buy.
Because we live a lie,
You and I.
Practiced smiles, sullen silence.
The occasional inaudible sigh.
Moss-covered tombstones that gather
Crumbled bouquets as the years go by,
We did it! We lived a lie.
We lived a lie, you and I.
