John Legend – My Imagination lyrics

[Verse 1]
I've made them love, I've made them cry
But now the rain clouds are lonely inside
They don't know how it feels to know how I feel
I try to escape from everything that is real

[Chorus 1]
Hide in my imagination, safe inside my contemplation
Never out of time, somewhere in my mind
There's a place where I'll be landing, far away from where I'm standing
Day by day creating in my imagination

[Verse 2]
The well has run dry of all my ideas
Silence so loud, have to cover my ears
I'm closing the door, it's hurting too much
I'm runnIng away from everything I can touch

[Chorus 2]
To hide in my imagination, there is always magic waiting
Never counting time, always on my mind
There's a place that only I see, far away from all that I see
Inch by inch creating, in my imagination

[Verse 3]
I can stop it all from hurting
With this mind, I can stop the world from turning
Don't know how it feels to know how I feel
I try to escape from everything that is real

[Chorus 1]
