More than an Illusion

Things were tough

But for a while we held on

People got in the way

But we'd still sing our soul song.

Dreams flew away

Hopes drifted off fast

Happiness just disappeared

Until only sorrow could last.

I needed an anchor

A rock foundation to keep me strong

Somebody who'd believe in me

And then you came along.

You figured out the formula

The key to unlock my heart

Kept me adrift in this sea

And plotted our future chart.

I'd felt like a toy

A figure that didn't mean a thing

I was chained to my misery

Just a puppet on a string.

You so patiently unraveled

The knots of confusion

And so gently healed me

You're more than an illusion...
