It's hard to know what he really meant when he wrote Life of Illusion. I think that many of us, at times, have had an unrealistic view of our lives. We may live in an illusion or have an illusion of how our lives should be.

Joe Walsh was a solo artist and also a member of the Eagles band. He wrote and recorded this song in 1981 after the breakup of the Eagles.
