Stop Pretending

You may think I was born yesterday
You may think that I’m blind
I may look sweet and innocent
But I don’t believe your lies
Don’t even try to hide it
Your secret’s been unveiled
Don’t even dare deny it
This harm cannot be healed

So stop pretending you’ve been nice
I just can’t stand it
Stop pretending we’re alright
It’s time to mend it
So stop pretending

If I have really been so
Important in your life
Why do you keep on hurting me
It’s amazing how you still try
The more you keep denying
What we all know is true
The more you will be implying
That I mean nothing to you
So stop pretending you’ve been nice
I just can’t stand it
Stop pretending we’re alright
It’s time to mend it
So stop pretending

It’s funny how your life can change so much
In a single minute
But if you had been honest and told me the truth
From the beginning
You could have been forgiven

The problem is believing
You took me for a fool
‘Cause we all make mistakes and
You should have faced the truth

So stop pretending you’ve been nice
I just can’t stand it
Stop pretending we’re alright
It’s time to mend it
So stop pretending
