Can't you just pretend that I'm an asshole?
That the love I profess is simply lies?
That I'm full of shit, when I say
That I see the stars in your eyes.
Can't we just pretend that I'm using you?
That I don't feel the way that I do.
That you really don't mean anything to me,
And that I just consider you some silly fling.
Just close your eyes and dream these things
That when I hold you close, it means nothing.
That the warmth you have, which I curl inside
Is not because I want to, but to boost my pride
That you're just a story to tell to the other guys
That I really don't care what it is you're feeling
That your thoughts and dreams have no meaning
Can't we just pretend, maybe for a little while
Can't we pretend that I only wish to defile
What is the reason that you dislike me?
What's so appalling about sincerity?
