"Smoke and Mirrors" as written by and Matthew Dean Treacy Clinton Blair Harris....
Jump on board
Take a leap of faith
How can we feel so close now
Yet be so far away

If I could have you just once a year
Let it be the longest day
It’s illusive as the present
I will love you either way
I will love you either way

[Chorus]
Oh my friend, don’t be afraid
Of smoke and mirrors
Oh my friend, this is our day
For hope and forgiveness
Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do
This could be a very long day

I wouldn’t hold my breath now
Did I hear you say
Were we on the same wave-length
Were we under the same rain

I’m not anticipatin’
What I had prayed for
I could have been more courageous
If only I had got out of my way

Oh my friend, don’t be afraid
Of smoke and mirrors
Oh my friend, this is our day
For hope and forgiveness
Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do
This could be a very long day

[Music]

Oh my friend, don’t be afraid
Oh my friend, don’t be afraid
Of smoke and mirrors

Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do
Oh, don’t you, don’t you, don’t you

Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do
Don’t you want this as much as I do...

Don’t you, don’t you, don’t you, don’t you, don’t you
(Be afraid of smoke and mirrors)
Don’t you, don’t you, don’t you, don’t you
(Be afraid of smoke and mirrors)

Don’t you want this as much as I do
(Be afraid of smoke and mirrors)
This could be a very long day
This could be a very long day
