Verse 1

Thought I'd struck gold in my treasure hunt,

Opened my eyes to see it was a penny.

Thought you were fighting your feelings,

Turns out you never really had any.

Chorus

Everything was just an illusion of the mind-

How I thought you used to give me those soft fond smiles,

How when you looked at me, I thought I could see your eyes shine,

It's dangerous to be a hopeless romantic, turns out it turns you blind,

It makes you a victim of illusions of the mind.

Verse 2

Thought maybe finally my luck has changed,

Maybe I have finally found The One.

Got lost in your sly grin and all my feelings,

And then you told me it's done.

Chorus

Everything was just an illusion of the mind-

How I thought you used to give me those soft fond smiles,

How when you looked at me, I thought I could see your eyes shine,

It's dangerous to be a hopeless romantic, turns out it turns you blind,

It makes you a victim of illusions of the mind.

Bridge

It makes you see things you want to see,

It drifts you so far away from reality.

And the minute you believe you're flying like a bird,

It crashes you down onto the ground hard.

And forever and ever you're broken and scarred.

Chorus

Cause everything was just an illusion of the mind-

How I thought you used to give me those soft fond smiles,

How when you looked at me, I thought I could see your eyes shine,

It's dangerous to be a hopeless romantic, turns out it turns you blind,

It makes you a victim of illusions of the mind.

Chorus

And everything was just an illusion of the mind-

How I thought you used to give me those soft fond smiles,

How when you looked at me, I thought I could see your eyes shine,

It's dangerous to be a hopeless romantic, turns out it turns you blind,

It makes you a victim of illusions of the mind.
