So here you are
The great pretender
Claiming we'll be okay
That nothing bad is yet to happen
And that we're sure to stay this way
All tangled up, and all forgetting
Such is life, and such are we
Ever prone to this romantic disbelief in destiny

That every time we close our eyes, my love
We can feel it slipping away
And every time you take my hand
We make believe that I'm here to stay

What we can see is all that matters
This apparent symmetry
Between who we are, and what we aim for
Between all your dreams, and me

Well, it's a pretty little picture
It's all I ever wanted to see
And yet I know it's make-believe
And that we're just pretending it's meant to be
