"Fact Fiction" as written by and Boots Ottestad Mads Langer....
Imagine a world without me
Say you're falling apart
Let's pretend you've missed me for a while
Wouldn't you say you were lonely
And love was breaking your heart?
Put on your Sunday best and fake a smile

I dream of dreaming dreams of her
In twilight she's a constant blur
The picture is clear
And I'm still fact, she's fiction

Remember the night you were with me
Fell asleep by my side
Strangers together, your hand in mind
How come we never came closer
When all the stars were aligned?
I thought we had a moment

I dream of dreaming dreams of her
In twilight she's a constant blur
The picture is clear
And I'm still fact she's fiction
I seem to miss the missing part
She's still my favorite work of art
The picture is clear
And I'm still fact, she's fiction

No, nothing has changed 'cause I'm still fact, she's fiction
Or I may be imperfectly formed in this contradiction

I dream of dreaming dreams of her
In twilight she's a constant blur
The picture is clear
'Cause I'm still fact she's fiction

I fell in love with her longing
Let's just say that she never found out
Who it was she never found in me

    General CommentI agree with many of the comments here, but still think there is room for more. I feel the song may not be about an imagined relationship, but about a real relationship that is lop-sided and lonely. The kind where one person is really in love, but the other is not. It may seem mutual for awhile but there comes a point of realization that the happily ever after you imagine is fictional. You may dream of how you wish things could be, and how you long for the other person to reciprocate, but in the end, love is lost and the only one who understands what could have been, is the one with the broken heart.
