Further From Fantasy - Lyrics by Renaissance


Lyrics

Past lovers whisper
Temptations from before
But i've learned illusion
I don't listen anymore

Some memories thicker still
On my silver screen
But i turn and walk away
From what might have been

I'm breaking ground
Into something that's real
Forgotten tenderness
You show me how to feel

Further from fantasy
I'm closer to you
More i remember
The more i'm pulling through
Further from fantasy
I'm closer to you

From pieces of my dream
You're by my side
Confusion washed away
By the rising tide

The rhythm of my heart
Is like the rhythm of the sea
Can't tell a breath apart
Is it you or me

My passions turned
From dull gray to gold
Fly again now
I've got someone true to hold

Chorus:

Further from fantasy
I'm closer to you
More i remember
The more i'm pulling through

Further from fantasy
I'm closer to you

I'm breaking ground
Into something that's real
Forgotten tenderness you show me
You show me how to feel

Repeat chorus four times

Further from fantasy
I'm closer to you
