lyrics

Sweet Illusion

My sweet, oh my sweet illusion
My most tempting confusion 
Have you seen me lately?
My dear, oh my secret lover
My teacher, my brother 
Have you seen me lately?

I’ve been sleeping for days at this place
Down by the bolder.
Covered in moss and stars,
Grieving a lover
And I know that the path that we made 
Is covered in blessings
So I carved you a rune stone here 
If ever you return
You will feel my love

I took myself to the water                 
Put incense and flowers down
And called in the one
I made a small boat out of paper
Put my longing inside her,
And gave thanks to the breeze

Take away this sweet illusion
Give me back sweet simplicity

I took myself to the water                 
Put incense and flowers down
And called in the one who guides me
I made a small boat out of paper
Put my longing inside her,
And gave thanks to the breeze

Take away this sweet illusion
Give me back sweet simplicity
Take away,
Takes away this sweet illusion
