Deceive Yourself (In Ignorant Heaven)

This song is by Del Amitri and appears on the album Del Amitri (1985).

The World
And the surrounding stars

But not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car

Not a shotgun blast nor a shooting star
Will bring her back from her stubborn tower.

It's a kind of madness, it's a kind of sin
To live in the state of mind I've been living in
Her face imprinted on my sight
Her voice resounding in my skull at night.
If there is a living goddess on Earth
It must be her from the heaven highlife
It takes this girl to realise what you're worth
And I'm worth nothing it she's worth more than my life.

But there's more that me than simple devotion
I won't just crawl at her feet and utter a plea
And if she refused I wouldn't walk into the ocean
Just because my world was left all out at sea.

So it was in this cafe when we eventually met
And I wished I had sunglasses and smoked cigarettes

The World
And the surrounding stars

When over the table and two cups of tea
She told me she felt the same way about me.
And not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car
Could have shaken our attention from each other's face
As we both jump down from our stubborn towers
We jump into the ignorant heaven that is the lovers place.
