Metro Station – Make Believe lyrics

Well I sleep with you
But you dream of him
And pretend every touch of my hand is his
You lead me on
And yoy say it's real
But I can tell by your eyes
What you truly feel, oh

I tuck you in
After you drink
I take advantage
Of this opportunity
But I lay awake
Thinking of her
And you just put your hands on me
As you have before

We'll both fake it
Pretend we'll make it
Make it as we have
With a past lover [x2]

I am yours
And you are mine
Just as we go on pretending tonight
We both know
This is make believe
I don't believe you when you said
I swept you off your feet

Close your eyes
And drift fast asleep
As I pleasure you
With my company
My eyes are fake
Because I'm staying awake
How can I sleep dreaming of her with you next to me?

We'll both fake it
Pretend we'll make it
Make it as we have
With a past lover [x2]
