Smokey Robinson And The Miracles – The Love I Saw You In Was Just A Mirage lyrics

There you were beautiful
The promise of love was written on your face
You led me on with untrue kisses
You held me captured in your false embrace
Quicker than I can bat an eye
Since you were telling me goodbye

Oh, just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seem to disappear
Sweetness was only heartaches camouflage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage
(You promised that happiness we'd forever share)
(But all I have are memories of love that was never there)

We use to meet in romantic places
You gave the illusion that your love was real
Now all that's left are lipstick traces
From the kisses you only pretended to feel
And now our meetings you avoid
And so my world you have destroyed

Oh, just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seem to disappear
The way you wrecked my life was like sabotage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage
(You brought me up just to throw me down)
(You left me and my dreams shattered all on the ground)

Oh, oh, oh you only feel me with despair
By showing love that wasn't there
Oh, just like the desert shows a thirsty man
Green oasis where there's only sand
You lured me into something I should have dodged
The love I saw in you was just a mirage
(To you I gave true love from deep within)
(You made me hungry for your love, but it was no deeper than your skin)
