"Smoke and Mirrors" as written by Rob Harris, Matt Johnson and Jay Kay....
I've been sneaking glances and writing lines about you.
What you think you can take back are the things that are going to haunt you.

This time won't be the last time
That I'm coming straight for your heart,
You know how I move.
And if I must say, I know that I'm worth...

More than you thought.
You've never compromised without rolling your...
I know you've completely torn apart the fact that we could be.

I'm on the search, in 2/4 time.
See the girl that I've been chasing after.
Wishin' her eyes would just reach mine.
Please girl, you know exactly who I'm after.

I can't begin to explain this infatuation that I've grown with you
And all that has to do with every moment that I'm here and you're not.

More than you thought.
You've never compromised without rolling your...
I know you've completely torn apart the fact that we could be.

I'm on the search, in 2/4 time.
See the girl that I've been chasing after.
Wishin' her eyes would just reach mine.
Please girl, you know exactly who I'm after.

And I thought that I would make it,
But you escaped it.
And you swore that you would take this somewhere, somewhere.
Now I'm lost and you're just fakin' the way you played this.
The escape game never seemed so cruel when...

[Repeat: x2]
I'm on the search, in 2/4 time.
See the girl that I've been chasing after.
Wishin' her eyes would just reach mine.
Please girl, you know exactly who I'm after.

    General Commenti love how at the end of the lines the last word seems to sorta give to the beginning of the next line. this song reminds me of a relationship i kinda have. the guy keeps chasing after the girl. The guys way into this girl and the girl keeps pushing him away. but the girl seems to enjoy it and so does the guy. i love the line:

    please girl you know exactly who i'm after.

    General CommentI love this song!! I agree with the other two people. About a guy who wants a girl basically but she keeps pushing him away as she isn't sure about him. I can relate..Great song

    General CommentI agree with the people above, but I don't think he exactly enjoys chasing her.

    'I know that I'm worth more than you thought
    You've never compromised without rolling your eyes'

    I think he's getting a little tired of chasing her & he just wants to be with her.

    General Commenti agree with devinlynn, i think hes getting frustrated 'cause he just wants to be with her, and she's either unsure of what she wants from him, or she just doesn't want anything. i can relate to this song a lot.

    General Commenti agree with every one above.
    its about a guy who really wants to be with this girl but she just keeps pushing him away & i think she kinda likes the atention but he is kinda getting tired of going after her cuz he just wants to be with her. anywais very good song. these guys will be my favorite band no matter what i absolutly love their music. i kinda like that they arnt really big like panic! at the disco or whatever.
