I could beg, I could plead, get down on my knees and pray;
you’d never believe it anyway.
You know your own schemes, playing nightmares and dreams
to get a hold of my cold, cold heart.
I swear; I swear the moment felt so true.
I swear it was
just me and you.
I swore I’d give up everything.

Come sit by my bedside,
tell me not to cry.
Tell me what I want from you;
explain it like you always do.
It’s crazy; crazy how you always find
the words to ease
my troubled mind,
until we both fall fast asleep.

And when we wake, will you forsake
the lies you been telling for so long?
Or will you maintain your tired refrain,
make me leave without saying goodbye?
Now; now we both know how these things end:
with a kiss
and “Let’s pretend
like we won’t do it all again.”
