Imaginary Man

.

Is this really it?

Is this the final station

It's really been quite a trip

.

You know it's been great to watch the sights

Playing the edited highlights

And all the outtakes you did not see

Were only my unreality

.

I am, I am imaginary

I am, I am imaginary

I'm the imaginary man

Imaginary man, yes I am

Imaginary, imaginary

.

I was always in your head

To raise your expectations

And always let it be said

.

I offered my very best to you

Gave you my dreams to aspire to

Involved you in all my crazy schemes

And took you to places you'd never seen

.

Walked down to Preservation Hall

Looking for the old trad band

It was just a momentary glance

.

I saw my reflection in the glass

Watched as the world went flashing past

I knew the face but could not tell

Why I couldn't recognise myself

.

I am, I am imaginary

I am, I am imaginary

I'm the imaginary man

Imaginary man, yes I am

Imaginary, imaginary

.

I'm the imaginary man, imaginary man

Imaginary man, yes I am

Imaginary, imaginary

Imaginary man, imaginary man

.
