The saddest story ever told The perfect Glory So all alone And I could love you Til kingdom come I might not deserve you But save you from The saddest story ever told Loving only What you behold In your own reflection When love is here All your pretension I hold you dear The saddest story ever told Narcissistic glory To be all alone And I could show you, listen what I say To feel real love is to give it away A happy ending would never be Narcissus dying
Be in love, be in love, be in love, be in love, be in love with me, Narcissus
Rosebud Narcissus touch me reach out your hand Oh if you fall in love with your own reflection like it was planned You would die in love fading to feel or to understand That only I can give Narcissus, I the nymph The rosebud Narcissus see me turn into sand If you fall in love with your reflection you may be damned But darling I could teach you to feel and understand Narcissus my love, thy love Echo

DJ Koze returns with his second track from "knock knock", his forthcoming album on Pampa Records. “Illumination” follows the previously released “Seeing Aliens” and is the first "knock knock" track Koze has shared featuring vocals. The ever-unique Róisín Murphy becomes a cyborg funk diva on “Illumination.” "Working on a song together with Roísín is even better than not working at all,” says Koze.
