"Disillusion" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
Seems you created your own illusion
Fueled by an image of me
Well I couldn't stay at your side
It wouldn't be right
A picture that I just don't see
Why do you have to make it so complicated
Can't it just be beautiful
I don't want to stifle your flight
I didn't mean to fall in love

Always in pursuit of the perfect people
Oh and I can see that it shows
But there's just an innocence in you I want to wring out
I know it could be beautiful

But I don't want a part of some situation
I don't want to be in that boat
I don't want to stifle your flight
I didn't mean to fall in love

Seems you created your own illusion
Fueled by an image of me
Well I couldn't stay at your side
It wouldn't be right
A picture that I just don't see

    General CommentI would imagine this song is about a relationship he feels need to end. She's created some disillusioned idea of their relationship, probably thinking about the future too soon, "a picture that I just don't see"; the relationship was going well, so why is she expecting even more ("Why do you have to make it so complicated / Can't it just be beautiful"? He was in love, but now, it's just not the same. He can't remain with her knowing that she's expecting something he can't give her. He'd rather end it now so as to preserve the goodness of what they had.

    General CommentI can't believe there are only 6 comments!

    I think this song is about a relationship, he's in love with the girl but he breaks up with her because she has a distorted and superficial idea of him.

    General CommentThis song is about how he wants to get in some girls pants and have a good time. She wants to have him as her boyfriend. They aren't seeing eye to eye.

    General CommentIt confuses me how it says ''I didn't mean to fall in love'', I interpreted as he just wants to have a good time, but now he's falling for her...or something like that.
    Anyhoo, I love this song, it makes me feel summery and want to dance!

    General CommentI was thinking this song was about a girl having high ambitions for her future and he feels like he's bringing her down. She wants the perfect person and a perfect life, and he's not part of it. He says "I didn't mean to fall in love" because he knows that he's not that perfect guy that she believes that she'll find. That's just me though.

    General CommentIt reminds me so much of a guy that I talk to on MSN messenger. He's got this illusion in his head of someone like me that's a million times better and nicer and more interesting and prettier. And basically just perfect, which I am most certainly not.

    General Commenthere's what i think - she created an illusion of his personality by his appearance - she jumped in with expectations, setting herself up for major disappointment because he wasn't what she had imagined, in turn, making him feel bad about himself because he fell in love. she is "always in pursuit of the perfect people", always expecting, having high standards, and he wonders why she has to make it so complicated in this way, instead of spontaneous and beautiful.
