Thompson Square – Brilliant Disguise lyrics

I hold you in my arms
As the band plays
What are those words whispered, baby
As you walk away
I saw you last night
Out on the edge of town,
I want to read your mind
And know just what I got in this new thing I've found,

So tell me who I see
When I look in your eyes,
Is that you baby
Or just a brilliant disguise

I heard somebody call your name
From underneath our willow,
I saw something tucked in shame
Underneath your pillow,
Well I tried so hard baby,
But I just can't see
What a woman like you, is don't with me,

So tell me who I see,
When I look in your eyes
Is that you baby,
Or just a brilliant disguise

Well now look at me baby
Struggling to do everything right
And then it all falls apart
Oh when I call the lights
I'm just a lonely pilgrim
I walk this world in well
I don't know if it's you I don't trust
Cause I damn sure don't trust my self,
You play the loving woman
I be the faithful man,
But just don't look to close
Into the palm of my hand
We stood at the alter
The gypsy swore our future was bright,
Become the wee wee hours
Baby baby the gypsy lied

So when you look at me
Better look hard and look twice
Is that me baby
Or just a brilliant disguise

Tonight our bed is cold
Lost in a darkness of our love,
God have mercy on a man
Who doubts what he's sure of.
