Another favorite of mine that I didn't see on YouTube (a studio version that is). From the 1995 album Get Lost. Written/sung by Stephin Merritt.

Lyrics:

Someone else's world goes by
As my train runs through this night
Someone else's rain comes down
But no rain can touch me now

Smoke and mirrors
Special effects
A little fear, a little sex
That's all love is
Behind the tears
Smoke and mirrors

We were foolish, you and I
But there's no reason to cry
We put on a lovely show
But that's all. I had to go

Smoke and mirrors
Special effects
A little fear, a little sex
That's all love is
Behind the tears
Smoke and mirrors

I don't know the stations' names
I'll spend my life on this train

Smoke and mirrors (Fumée et miroirs)
Special effects (Effets speciaux)
A little fear (un peu de peur)
A little sex (un peu de sexe)
That's all love is (sous les lârmes)
Behind the tears (L'amour n'est que sa)
Smoke and mirrors (De la fumée et des miroirs)
