Every time I look into the mirror
Every time I have to close my eyes
I ask myself is it a sin to be a sinner
If it's only something on my mind
'Cause I know that we could never be
Like we want to be

I'm only make believing
I'm only self deceiving
Tell me how could I
Tell myself a lie
Dreaming is all I do
When I can't have you

Someone else can hold you like I want to
Someone else can really make you cry
Wish I could find a way to make it better
But I know that I couldn't even try
'Cause I know that we could never be like we want to be

If I could be the only one that you'll come running to
If I could make the past undone I would
Sometimes I feel it's the way you look at me
The way that you do, when you know I can't have you
