The Pretender
Such a smile and never giving up
Never stopping till you had my heart
Walks in the park and outings with you son
You pretending that I was the one

Even when I caught you being less than faithful
You were wounded and pitiful and wanting nothing but me
I forgave you and forgave you over and over
You pretending that I was the one

And as we grew closer I fell in love with your boy
He loved me too and we are connected for sure
What kind of man lets you be a part of his son's life?
You pretending that I was the one

Now all of the sudden I'm not welcome or wanted
Don't even care to say good morning
Not even a call or care how you've hurt me
Now I know you were pretending all along

How am I suppose to give up on you
How am I suppose to give up your son
How am I suppose to go on knowing
You pretended that I was the one

I can still see the pain and feel it too in your words. You gave your heart and fell deeply, only to hve this happen to you. Can't help but to feel like he was "The Great Pretender" as the old song goes. It is things like this that makes it much harder for you to trust a new person
