"Fiction" as written by Romy Anna Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and James Thomas Smith....
Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
I wake up alone, with only daylight between us
Last night the world was beneath us, tonight comes, dear love
Were we torn apart by the break of day?
You're more than I can believe, whatever come my way

Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
Come real love, why do I refuse you?
'Cause if my fear's right, I risk to lose you
And if I just might wake up alone
Bring on the night

Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
Any certainties, how am I to tell?
I know your face all too well, still I wake up alone

Fiction, when we're not together

    My InterpretationIt seems like it's about people who are hooking up but aren't anything more. They want to be something more though, but are afraid to show it, and their actions don't show the other person what they really want.

    "Come real love, why do I refuse you?
    Cause if my fear's right, I risk to lose you"

    The juxtaposition of the fear of putting yourself out there and falling in love with the fear of losing someone.

    My InterpretationI think the song says the lives of people who don't have 'love' is fake, a fiction. It walks about people who don't love someone... not because there is no 'someone' for them but because there is that 'someone' and they are afraid to lose them...
    Just an interpretation.

    My InterpretationI think that this song is about how we can get so engulfed with the idea of who we want a person to be, that we can get lost in this idea. This person is so engulfed that they can only ever find a person like that in their dreams.
