(The Love I Saw In You Was) Just A Mirage

from Fugitives

There you were
Beautiful
The promise of love
Was written on your face
You led me on
With untrue kisses
You held me captive
In your false embrace

Quicker than I could bat an eye
Seems you were telling me goodbye
Just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to
Disappear
Sweetness was only heartache's
Camouflage
The love I saw in you was
Just a mirage

We used to meet in
Romantic places
You gave the illusion
That your love was real
Now all that's left
Are mystic traces
Of the kisses you only
Pretended to feel

And now our meetings
You avoid
And so my world
You have destroyed
Just a minute ago
Your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to
Disappear
The way you left my heart
Was like sabotage
The love I saw in you
Was just a mirage

You only filled me with despair
By showing love that wasn't there
Just like the desert shows a
Thirsty man
A green oasis where there's
Only sand
You lured me into something
I couldn't dodge
The love I saw in you
Was just a mirage
