A Trick of the Light Lyrics Meanings

A Trick of the Light Lyrics

Ben-hur is raiding the honesty bar
Cleopatra is taking a shower
Dinosaurs devour room service
Whilst astronauts explore the moon's surface
Isn't it funny it's only a trick of the light

A trick of the light
Remember, sat in the dark
With my arm 'round your shoulder
The curtains drew back
I was bowled over
This is what I had been dreaming about
Life with the boring bits edited out
I fell in love
Fell in love with this trick of the light

Trick of the light
In love at first sight
With this trick of the light
So very life like
This trick of the light
Yes, it looks so real but it's only a trick of the light

A trick of the lights
Remember, elephants and angels
Bikers and truckers
Creatures of the night
And lousy cock-suckers
Kings and queens and sons and lovers
Shoving the lens under the covers
I reached out to touch but you can't touch a trick of the light

A trick of the light
Well I wasted my life
On a trick of the light
Yeah you tricked me alright
Yeah, trick of the light And I could've sworn you were looking straight at me
I could've sworn you were speaking my language
I lost it all, I lost it for good
I lost my wife but, that's Hollywood
I lost it all
Thrown away on this trick of the light

Magic box
Upon which life leaves a stain
Which we can watch
Again and again
Oh you taught us to kiss
Taught us so many things
Do you mind if I ask
When do we get to join in?
A magic window
A most marvelous confection
But windows are for looking through
Not for checking out your reflection

No I'm not crying I've just got something in my eye
Oh, it's a trick of the light
I'm completely alright
It's just a trick of the light
I'm waving goodbye
To the love of my life
Oh, what a surprise
The love of my life was a trick of the light

This is the Chateau Marmont message center
