Quiet as I watch you falling
You become the pray again
I can see your skin is crawling
Lipstick cases and sin

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Your drowning, same old song n' dance
Wake up, wake up, wake up, My darling,
Never stood a chance

Lost in love you are
Out of touch so far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just Smoke and Mirrors

Hear it in her voice
She's stalling
"You were just another man"
Your claims of love are falling
Now it's clear you can't win

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Hearts pounding, praying for romance
Wake up, wake up, wake up,
It's sounding, time to try again

Lost in love you are
Out of touch so far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

I'd rather be alone
Than put you on a throne
And lose my faith in
Smoke and mirrors

Black painted eyes
Cover the lies
It's time you threw away your cruel disguise

Lost in love you are
Out of touch so far
An illusion
It's all just Smoke and Mirrors

Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

I'd rather be alone
Than put you on a throne
And lose my faith in
Smoke and Mirrors

    That someone who has been hurt so many time will sometimes look anywhere for love even if it someone that has already hurt them just to feel like they are loved

    This is like my last relationship to me. I was trying not to fake being in love with this guy and the songs seems to speak of a person being a fake lover to someone else. I'm not sure but that is what i'm getting from it

    That we all get lost and we think things are real when they are not as if we are looking into smoke and mirrors.
