[Verse 1]

Tryin’ to get control

Pressure’s takin’ its toll

Stuck in the middle zone

I just want you alone

My guessing game is strong
 Way too real to be wrong
Caught up in your show
Yeah, at least now I know

[Chorus]

It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)
You were a perfect illusion

[Verse 2]

I don’t need eyes to see

I felt you touchin’ me

High like amphetamine

Maybe you’re just a dream

That’s what it means to crush

Now that I’m wakin’ up

I still feel the blow

But at least now I know

[Chorus]

It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

[Bridge]

Where are you?

Cause I can’t see you

It was a perfect illusion

But I feel you watchin’ me

Dilated, falling free

In a modern ecstasy

Where are you?

Cause I can’t see you

It was a perfect illusion

But I feel you watchin’ me

But I feel you watchin’ me

Illusion

But I feel you watchin’ me

Mistaken for love

Where were you

Cause I can’t see

But I feel you watchin’ me

Mistaken for love

Dilated, falling free

In a modern ecstasy

Mistaken for love

In a modern ecstasy

In a modern ecstasy

I’m over the show

Yeah at least now I know

[Chorus]

It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love

It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion)

You were a perfect illusion

You were a perfect illusion

It was a perfect illusion

Somewhere in all the confusion

It was a perfect illusion, illusion (illusion)

[Outro]

Where were you ’cause I can’t see it

It was perfect illusion

But I feel you watchin’ me, baby

Somewhere in all the confusion

Dilated, fallin’ free

You were so perfect

In a modern ecstasy

You were a perfect illusion

“Kevin flew to us from Australia and he came with this idea, that was the beginning of a song called Illusion,” she told Nick Grimshaw, according to BBC. Another interesting fact she told the host is that  Lady Gaga Perfect Illusion lyrics were written on a typewriter.

“I work on a typewriter and we would bounce new lyrics back and forth. We stripped everything away. Changed the melody, shifted it. I sat at piano, Kevin was on guitar, Mark was on the bass,” she added. What do you think of  Lady Gaga Perfect Illusion lyrics?
