Cursive – Fairytales Tell Tales lyrics

Lets pretend were not needy
Lets pretend our hearts still beat
Lets pretend we fall in love tonight
Clumsy enough to fall for anything
Well stumble on our words
Well spill our guts on creaking bar stools
Below the neon blue
Low lives hiding in dives there's no feeling in drinking sleeping with strangers
Ghosts passing through bedrooms unaware
A faint reflection on the barbacks mirror
A face I never knew whispering,
Please don't be a stranger to me. who are you if you're alone'
You're no good at pretending
All my plays have tragic endings
You wish I was a fairy tale
This frog will never change anything
Just pretend that you're in love
That scolding sun is bound to come up eventually
So who is it that whispers in your ear
A haunting voice blows in through the window
There's no feeling floating over beds
A needy pleading apparition
Crying 'who am I if I'm alone?
I hardly exist at all.
Lets pretend that we don't need anything anymore from anyone.
I don't want to feel anything anymore lets just pretend'
Well live happily ever after
