So you're tryin' to make connections
You heard whispers in the hall
She'll be out again this evening
When you come around to call
So you dodge the lady killer
Who came creapin' 'cross the floor
Then you're caught up in a whirlwind
You got blown right out the door
Ah yes, it was a whirlwind
Sweet romance was on your side
Er, if you want to dance on my face
You must tell me why yer lied

Imagination is a powerful deceiver
When you try to believe her just a little too much
Imagination is a powerful deceiver
I'll go out of my mind if I'm losing your touch

I see the look of recognition
So well hidden in your eye
And your peep-show regulations
That just don't seem to apply
Did I see yer in the circus
In the ring without a hand
Now you think that you can curse us
Steal the show and stop the band
Ah, you can follow your dream
Oh but please don't lead me on
Er, if you want to bleed? in my face
Er, you were here and now you're gone


I'll go out of my mind if I'm losing your touch (repeat x3)
