"Smoke and Mirrors" as written by Paloma Faith, Alison Moira Clarkson and Stephen Paul Robson....
I met you we made a pact
Broke promises the system snaps
All your lights and neon lights are old

Dicta-coated miracles and then one day the curtain called
Behind your smile you're bony and a fake

Give it up
You've been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
Don't look back 'cos you've just lost your lova'
Give it up
Your unillusioned (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
Play our tricks and all I get is just confusion

And now we're through
The show is over
The audience is walking out the room
You know it's true, when I told ya
That all this gunk comes back around on you

You said you were built to last
You took my hand you made a pass
The moon eclipsed and circled round my heart
With your kiss my life began
Your love it hit and then you ran
And I hope you pay your dues I'm moving on

Give it up
You've been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
Don't look back 'cos you've just lost your lova'
Give it up
Your inillusioned (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
Play our tricks and all I get is just confusion

And now we're through
The show is over
The audience is walking out the room
You know it's true, when I told ya
That all this gunk comes back around on you

You might think I'm sitting home and crying
But I'm not, oh no
I've pulled the Queen of Clubs, there's no denying
I'm having the time of my life

And now we're through
The show is over
The audience is walking out the room
You know it's true, when I told ya
That all this gunk comes back around on you

And now we're through
The show is over
The audience is walking out the room
You know it's true, when I told ya
That all this gunk comes back around
All this gunk comes back around
On you.

    I met you we made a pact
    Broke promises the system snaps
    All your lies and neon lights are old

    Dicta-coated miracles and then one day the curtain called
    Behind your smile you're phony and a fake

    Give it up
    You've been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
    Don't look back 'cos you've just lost your lova'
    Give it up
    Your unillusioned (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
    Play your tricks and all I get is just confusion

    And now we're through
    The show is over
    The audience is walking out the room
    You know it's true, what I told ya
    That all you done comes back around on you

    You said you were built to last
    You took my hand you made a pass
    The moon eclipsed and circled round my heart
    With your kiss my life began
    Your love it hit and then you ran
    And I hope you pay your dues I'm moving on

    Give it up
    You've been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
    Don't look back 'cos you've just lost your lova'
    Your unillusioned (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)
    Play your tricks and all I get is just confusion

    And now we're through
    The show is over
    The audience is walking out the room
    You know it's true, what I told ya
    That all you done comes back around on you

    You might think I'm sitting home and crying
    But I'm not, oh no
    I've pulled the Queen of Clubs, there's no denying
    I'm having the time of my life

    And now we're through
    The show is over
    The audience is walking out the room
    You know it's true, what I told ya
    That all you done comes back around on you

    And now we're through
    The show is over
    The audience is walking out the room
    You know it's true, what I told ya
    That all you done comes back around
    All you done comes back around
    On you.

    General CommentThe video confirmed it for me. It's based around when she was magicians assistant with a terrible magician.
    A relationship and him being a terrible lover is implied but it's totally about a terrible magician who's made lots of bad choices be that cheating on his lover trying to grope Paloma or thought he was a fantastic entertainer and was just not.
