Let me go I'm only letting you down
I've got nothing to say to you now
Lose the feelings that are weighing me down
When I'm safe

It's turning morning, all the birds sing
I'm not complicating anything
I'll have another then I'll go to bed
But I'll dream of you

'Cause it's almost over and it's almost gone
But I can feel the sweet illusion coming
Sweet confusion, honey, sweet illusion coming down
And I ain't got nothing but love for you now

You and I used to shine like a jewel
But times been nothing to us but cruel
So play it out and never played the fool
'Cause you'll lose every time

We were nothing, we were only the past
Hard times like that don't last
I've been forgiven, I've been surpassed by my heart
Have you?

'Cause it's almost over, yeah, it's almost gone
And I can feel the sweet illusion coming
Sweet confusion, sweet illusion coming down
And I ain't got nothing but love for you, love for you, I can't use
Lonely nights multiplied by the blues that I can't resolve

You never knew me but I did my best
I'm just lonely inside I guess
You gave me everything you really tried
Thanks

If we were nothing and we're only the past
I'm just living in a dream I guess
A long black dream that takes me down the river to you

Well, it's almost over and we're almost gone
And I can feel the sweet illusion coming
Sweet confusion, honey, sweet illusion coming down

Well, I can feel the sweet illusion coming
Sweet confusion, honey, sweet illusion coming down
And I ain't got nothing but love for you now
