Let’s all just play pretend
Wait, we are too good at this
Tell that to all the lovers we’ve met
Others we’ve ignored when they were not looking
Those with the perfect image,
unblemished even after past lives but still we filtered them
Looking for damages in places there were none
But aren’t we really the damaged ones?
Edging through the door, piece by piece
Slipping to the other side before they knew we were gone
We just wanna speed away and leave no trail
If only we could tip the scale,
make us lighter, less scared to want things
There is not really much out there anyway
Hey ye of little faith, have you never made a wish to the wind?
Wait a minute, is that a trick question?
No one said anything about going in deep
Let’s keep it simple, let’s play pretend.
Stepping on toes,
Looking over my shoulders,
I am here for a while,
Then I go back to the arms I once knew,
But I crawl back to the heart that feeds on me,
I manipulate the heart that needs me,
Taking too much, giving too little
Or giving nothing at all,
Expecting to find kisses floating in the air
I’m a terrible lover,
Throwing love in the dust,
But I’m a lover in training.
