​Love or Delusion

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Don't Tell Columbus (2007).

I was right there near the goal
In the information flow
Where strange things come and go
From despair to ecstatic glow
Where the flesh meets the dust
But there's nothing there to trust
Where the rhythms pulse and bind
Where the human heart takes over the mind

And the sky's only blue
If you think it is
And you think that's true
But you don't get to choose
Between love or delusion

I was right there in your bed
But I could not get in your head
No I could not penetrate
I unlocked the code too late
From the zeros to the ones
In between those complicated sums
In a system so advanced
That it runs on blood
And it works by chance

But the sea's only blue
If you think it is
And you think that's true
But you don't get to choose with
Love or delusion

Well I've smelled your hair
And I've kissed your lips
Felt the touch of your fingertips
But the sky was only blue
When it looked that way
And I wanted it to

I was out of my head
Between the living and the dead
Where the stars don't align
In a paradox of time
From the zeros to the ones
In between those complicated sums
In a system so advanced
That it runs on blood
And it works by chance

But the sky's only blue if you think it is
And you think that's true
And the sea's only green
In a certain light that you think you've seen
And you don't get to choose
Between love or delusion
