Maskerade – Acts Of Desperation lyrics

Verse 1
I'm alone, and I really want you to care
That I took all of your clothes and I scattered them everywhere
This is your home, but your pictures are off the wall
You're number's not in my phone
But it really doesn't help at all

These are my acts, my acts of desperation
Gotta get you back, I need you back,
I'm not gonna fake it
You are my heart, and now I'm not operating
Gotta stay alive, I won't survive
I'm not gonna make it without you

Verse 2
The other day, someone I had to see
He asked me what I believe, so I asked if he could pray for me
I'm going out of my way, maybe I'll find a book
I can cut all my hair or buy a lucky rabbit's foot
But I've got to find a way


I'm not going to make it
I'm not going to act like I'm not in need
Not going to fake it
And try to make all my friends believe
That I'm moving on
That I'm not going to fall
When I know the only thing that really moves at all
Is the the time clock on the wall
And that's the only thing on the wall

Verse 3
I'm alone, and the nights feel really long
I've been searching all around our home
To find out where it all went wrong
Cause I've got a find a way

Chorus 2x
