I look into your eyes
It's a shadow on my wall
And shadows of your smile
Will be all I can recall
All inventions
Of my own perfection

Passing the time
Every night
Imitation of life
And the days go by, yeah

I gaze into the night
It's a feeling that I find
The first time that you smiled
Is the last thing on my mind, oh yes
Sweet salvation
From my weak foundations

All of the time
So many lies
Imitation of life
And the days go by
Passing the time
Every night
Imitation of life
And the dreams go by

Oh I look into your eyes
It's a shadow on my wall
And shadows of your smile
Will be all I can recall
All inventions
From my own perfection

Passing the time
So many lies
All of it mine
All of the time
Imitation of life
And the days go by

Oh I'm passing the time
Every night, yes
Imitation of life
And the dreams go by
Passing the time
So many lies
All of it mine
