Pretending is what I am used to
Acting like everything was ok
Pretending the songs you wrote
Acting like they were about me

Pretending like you cared
Acting as if everything never happened
Pretending to hate you
Acting as if you never loved me

It was easyer that way
If I acted and pretended you never loved
My heart slowly stopped beating
and the thought of you kept repeating

Tell myself it was lust not love
Like he wasn't sent from above
Been a year since then
Making it harder to deffend

Breaking every word
Put my life in fast forward
Imaging you never missed me
Imaging you never kissed me
