Basia — The Sweetest Illusion lyrics

Bread and butter tastes more like it could be _cordon bleu_
Mona lisa's smiling like a cheshire cat
Even johnny rocker sounds today like nat king cole
Every yellow taxi's like a cadillac

And the cup that once appeared half empty
Has become a cup that is half full
Where there was a space there is now plenty
You're a lucky sign ascending--
No one does for me what you do

Love is the sweetest illusion

Every innuendo seems to be in semaphore
Monday mornings turn into a mardi gras
And a glass of soda taste more like dom perignon
Every dead end street's an ocean boulevard

The more i look the more i see
And i don't mind if my senses are deceiving me
The more i touch the more i feel
Who cares what is imaginary and what is real
If black is white and red is green
I don't care which way around it is supposed to be
I close my eyes but i can see...

The more i look the more i see
Form where i stand my world is looking
Good to me
The more i touch the more i feel
Don't want to know that is true what's
Make believe...
