Illusion Of Bliss

  • You know, right now I miss someone that I love
    Or fell in love with
    I don't wanna cry or nothing but
    I'mma just get straight to the story
    I'm a 29 year old addict

    What would you know?
    What would you do?
    If you had no control over what you pursue?
    Talk yourself, tell yourself, baby
    "I'm better than this"
    All that I'm fighting
    I don't wanna resist

    So I persist
    Like a bottomless kiss
    An illusion of bliss
    An illusion of bliss
    So I persist
    Like a bottomless kiss
    An iIllusion of bliss
    An iIllusion of bliss

    Hey, living in prison of blood and flesh
    An easy way out is this high, I confess
    So watcha lookin' at
    What you wanna see
    You can't save me, baby
    I don't wanna it no way

    So I persist
    Like a bottomless kiss
    An illusion of bliss
    An illusion of bliss
    So I persist
    Like a bottomless kiss
    An illusion of bliss

    Is it my life?
    Ain't no easy road
    I don't know which way to go
    Won't somebody see me when I can't see myself
    Won't somebody listen before I need help
    I'm sick of being judged
    I'm sing of being sick
    Oh where's the love
    Tired of being tricked
    Sick of being high, sick of being low
    Sick of all the lies putting on the show
    So I persist

    So I persist
    Like a bottomless kiss
    An illusion of bliss
    An illusion of bliss

    I don't wanna be a fallen angel
    I don't wanna be a fallen angel
    Don't say I'm gone, gone
    I don't wanna be a fallen angel
    Don't say I'm lost, lost
    I don't wanna be a fallen angel
    Don't say I'm gone, gone
    I don't wanna be a fallen angel
    Don't say I'm lost, lost
    I don't wanna be a fallen angel Writer/s: Alicia Augello Cook, Kaseem Dean, Mark Batson, Harold Lilly
