    Once again my wings on fire
    flapping round your deadly flames.
    Walking on the old high wire
    trying to keep myself away.
    You come walking down your marble stairs, throwing back your yellow hair.
    And I want you, and I need you,
    But every time you let me near
    you leave me feeling such sweet despair.

    Going to keep away, keep away.

    It's an illusion to think I can keep away from you.
    It's an illusion like eskimoes in Mogadishu.
    It's an illusion this state of independence I'm in.
    It's an illusion like polar bears in Berlin.

    When I feel happy, you feel deep,
    you always go out when I want to sleep.
    Fire, water, sun and rain,
    war and peace and night and day.
    Who can understand
    love's magic incompatibilities?

    Going to keep away, keep away.

    It's an illusion, it's just a cheap masquerade.
    It's an illusion, hiding this love I can't evade.
    It's an illusion, can't you see through the camouflage?
    It's an illusion, without you life is a mirage.

    I'm a foot without a shoe, I'm the fuzz without a clue,
    I'm a ship without a crew, I'm lost without you.
    One and one that can't make two, carrots looking for some stew,
    a lawyer with no one to sue, I'm lost without you.
    I'm the sky that's lost its blue, I'm the beer that just won't brew,
    I'm a stamp that has no glue, I'm lost without you.
    A hound with no fox to pursue, I'm a cat that's lost its mew,
    a star without an interview, I'm lost without you
