Pretty Words, And Beautiful Lies (2011)

I almost can't believe it, 

When I hear it, 

My pretty words are being thrown back in my face, 

But they're coming from your mouth this time...

Pretty words, 

That amount to, a beautiful lie, 

Lies that I want very badly to believe...

And I almost can't believe it, 

I don't even know how we got to this point, 

And at this crossroad, 

I think I might be lost, 

I might be too far gone...

And all because I thought too long, 

On what it might be like to be in your embrace...

And I'm definitely lost now, 

Lost in a labyrinth of confused feelings and emotions for you...

And maybe I'm too blind to see how he feels, 

Or maybe I just don't want to, 

'Cause secretly I know, 

I know, 

That he's in the same situation as me, 

In love with someone who can't reciprocate, 

'Cause they're in love with someone else...

And secretly I know that he can't help but to listen rapt, 

To the pretty words that spill from my mouth, 

The beautiful lies that I spin...

And I really don't want to fawn over you, 

I really don't want things to be weird for us...

And I really don't want him to fawn over me, 

And I'm sorry, 

So sorry, 

But I just don't seem to, 

Can't seem to feel the same about him...

And we're all caught up in the lie now, 

We're all just pretending now...

And I can't help it, 

If things are getting a little Shakespearean in here...

But there's no turning back, 

'Cause there's no way out...

All of us singing such pretty words, 

Amounting to such a beautiful lie...

I almost can't believe it, when I hear you sing.

Emo, angsty gothic love stories, mostly some kind of poetry. A passion I didn't know I had until I was about 21. Something that I have been doing mostly consistently ever since. My pen name is Belasrose, my online name is Caerid Lock.
