Patty Griffin – No More Illusions lyrics

Here goes everything down to the wire
I'm gonna sing like a canary on fire
And the world won't stop, but maybe you will stay
I apologize for rocking the boat
But my heart gets caught on those lumps in my throat
And these word just miss my lips somewhere along the way

You and me, we got no more illusions
Wildcards or shadows of a doubt
But the end ain't a foregone conclusion
Oh baby can we live without illusions

Our long shadows cast here in the moonlight
Cross the lawn and fade from our sight
And the world beyond is turning like a wheel
Every step we take is out of the past.
Everybody says "Darling, we won't last."
But they don't know what we know or feel what we feel

You and me, we got no more illusions
Wildcards or shadows of a doubt
But the end ain't a foregone conclusion
Oh baby can we live without illusions

I can't pretend that the sparks are still flying
Or the ember is burning stronger
At least by now I might be getting real good at trying
Can we try a little longer?

You and me, we got no more illusions
Wildcards or shadows of a doubt
But the end ain't a foregone conclusion
Oh baby can we live without illusions
