Let's Pretend We're Lovers
What you want of me I won't ignore,
though you'll use me as I've been used before.
If love was on the menu I'd want a slice
but if you're wondering why I'm thinking twice
It's easy for me to let you see
the darker, weaker side of me.
Let's pretend we're lovers, before we start
I can't promise you won't break my heart.
Can you blame me tonight for turning away?
These eyes express what words can't say.
Trying to hide but it's just no good
and the feelings go misunderstood.
You're immune to the signals I am sending,
only too aware that we're just pretending.
Even though I know you'll never be true,
let's pretend we're lovers - I won't refuse.
If I sin out of love can I hope & trust
that this bleeding heart is penance enough?
We play along even though I'll be
just used like a pill you think you need.
These tear-filled eyes remain unseen,
this body can't express what this heart doesn't mean.
Let's pretend we're lovers, I'll make love to you
but I'll be pretending that you love me too!
