Elvis Costello - "Imagination" lyrics

So youre trying to make connection, you heard whispers in the hall

Shell be out again this evening, when you come around to call
So, you dodge the lady-killer, who came creepin cross the floor

Then you caught up in a whirlwind, you got blown right out the door

Oh, yes it was a whirlwind, sweet romance was on your side

If you wanna dance on my face, you must tell me why you lied

When you try to believe her just a little too much
Imagination is a powerful deceiver
Imagination is a powerful deceiver

Ill go out of my mind, if Im losing your touch

I see a look of recognition, so well hidden in your eye
And your peepshow regulations, they just dont seem to apply,
Well, did I see you in the circus, in the ring without a hand

Now you think that you can curse us, steal the show and stop the band

Oh, you can follow your dreams, oh but please dont lead me on,

If you wanna bleed in my face, you were here and now youre gone

Imagination is a powerful deceiver

When you try to believe her just a little too much

Imagination is a powerful deceiver

Ill go out of my mind, if Im losing your touch
Ill go out of my mind, if Im losing your touch

Ill go out of my mind, if Im losing your touch
