So I've made up my mind
I will pretend
To leave this world behind
And in the end
You'll know I've lied
To get your attention
I'm faking my own suicide

I'm faking my own suicide
Because I know you love me
You just haven't realized
I'm faking my own suicide
They'll hold a double funeral
Because a part of you will die
Along with me

Wish you thought that I was dead
So rather than me
You'd be depressed instead
And before arriving at my grave
You'd come to the conclusion
You've loved me all your days
But it's too late
Too late for you to say

Because I'm faking my own suicide
Because I know you love me
You just haven't realized
I'm faking my own suicide
They'll hold a double funeral
Because a part of you will die
Along with me

I'll write you a letter that
You'll keep
Reminding you your love for me
Is more than six feet deep
You say aloud that you
Would've been my wife
Right about that time
Is when I come back to life
And let you know
I'd let you know

That all along I was faking my own suicide
Because I know you loved me
You just never realized
I was faking my own suicide
I'll walk in that room and
See your eyes open so wide
Open so wide
Because you know
Because you know
You will never leave my sight
(You will never leave my sight)
Until the day that I die for the first time
(Until I die for the first time)
And we'll laugh, yeah we'll laugh
And we will cry
So overjoyed with our love that's so alive
Our love is so alive

    It's all about a guy who loves a girl and is willing to go to desperate measures to get her attention and make her admitt that she loves him. So the best way to get her attention and for her to admitt her feelings that the guy is assuming, he fakes his own suicide, leaves a note for her, and walks in after she says she would've been his wife. It's all really a fantasy that this guy has about the girl of his dreams sobbing over his death, finding out it was fake, and then they live together happily ever after and laugh about it.
