"Love I Saw in You Was Just a Mirage" as written by Marvin Tarplin and William Robinson Jr.....
There you were beautiful
The promise of love was written on your face
You led me on with untrue kisses
Oh, you held me captured in your false embrace

Quicker than I could bat an eye
Seems you were telling me goodbye
Just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
Sweetness was only heartache's camouflage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

We used to meet in romantic places
Oh, you gave the illusion that your love was real
Now all that's left are lipstick traces
From the kisses you only pretended to feel

And now our meeting you avoid
And so my world you have destroyed
Just a minute ago your love was here, oh baby
All of a sudden it seemed to disappear, yeah
The way you wrecked my life was like sabotage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

Oh, yeah you only filled me with despair
By showing love that wasn't there
Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
A green oasis where there's only sand
You lured me into something I should have dodged
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

Oh yeah, just like a desert shows a, yeah
A green oasis where there's only sand, ooh
You lured me into somthing I should have dodged
