"Deceive Yourself" as written by and Harvie Billy Currie....
The World
And the surrounding stars
Might change completely in the space of an hour
But not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car
Will turn me back now that I've come this far
Not a shotgun blast nor a shooting star
Will bring her back from her stubborn tower
It's a kind of madness, it's a kind of sin

To live in the state of mind I've been living in
Her face imprinted on my sight
Her voice resounding in my skull at night
If there is a living goddess on Earth
It must be her from the heaven highlife
It takes this girl to realize what you're worth

And I'm worth nothing it she's worth more than my life
But there's more that me than simple devotion
I won't just crawl at her feet and utter a plea
And if she refused I wouldn't walk into the ocean
Just because my world was left all out at sea
So it was in this cafe when we eventually met

And I wished I had sunglasses and smoked cigarettes
The World
And the surrounding stars
They change completely in the space of an hour
When over the table and two cups of tea
She told me she felt the same way about me

And not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car
Could have shaken our attention from each other's face
As we both jump down from our stubborn towers
We jump into the ignorant heaven that is the lovers place
