  • Tryin' to get control
    Pressure's takin' its toll
    Stuck in the middle zone
    I just want you alone
    My guessing game is strong
    Way too real to be wrong
    Caught up in your show
    Yeah, at least now I know

    It wasn't love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
    Mistaken for love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
    You were a perfect illusion

    I don't need eyes to see
    I felt you touchin' me
    High like amphetamine
    Maybe you're just a dream
    That's what it means to crush
    Now that I'm wakin' up
    I still feel the blow
    But at least now I know

    It wasn't love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
    Mistaken for love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)

    (Where are you, 'cause I can't see you)
    It was a perfect illusion (but I feel you watchin' me
    Dilated, falling free
    In a modern ecstasy)
    (Where are you, 'cause I can't see you
    It was a perfect illusion
    (But I feel you watchin' me)
    Illusion (but I feel you watchin' me)
    Mistaken for love (where are you 'cause I can't see)
    (But I feel you watchin' me)
    Mistaken for love (dilated, falling free in a modern ecstasy)
    Mistaken for love
    In a modern ecstasy
    In a modern ecstasy

    I'm over the show
    Yeah at least now I know

    It wasn't love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
    Mistaken for love, it wasn't love
    It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
    (Aah) you were a perfect illusion
    (Aah) it was a perfect illusion
    It was a perfect illusion
    Somewhere in all the confusion
    It was a perfect illusion, illusion (illusion)

    It was perfect illusion
    Somewhere in all the confusion
    You were so perfect
    You were a, you were a perfect illusion Writer/s: Kevin Richard Parker, Mark D. Ronson, Michael Tucker, Stefani J Germanotta
