Secondhand Serenade – Pretend lyrics

It seems all of these words couldn't be further from the truth
How did I get here? What did I do?

Your eyes, telling me lies
And making me find myself
While you have your agenda, a life to pursue

So please,
Let me be free from you
And please, let me be free
I can face the truth.

I'm blind to all of your colors
That used to be rainbow then
My eyes, where did they go to?
Why disappear?

It's hard to be all alone
I never got through your disguise
I guess I'll just go, and face all my fear

So please,
Let me be free from you
And please,
Let me be free from you
Please let me be free
I can face the truth.

Put down your world
Just for one night
Pick me again

So please,
Let me be free from you
And please, let me be free
I can face the truth

    He is in love with a girl, but she obviously does not love him back and/or is taken. He can tell that she doesn't love him, but he has fallen too deep for her. He now realizes that he has to move on with his life, and is asking her to release the hold that she possesses over him. He is basically saying that he loves her, but he will survive if she doesn't love him back, but he just really needs to move on.

    He's in love with this girl and she is sending him mixed signals. And he just wants to know which it is. Is she in love with him or not? At this point he doesn't care which. It just hurts more living with the mixed signals than it does to know she doesn't feel the same. So hes telling her that either way ill be fine just tell me which it is!

    I think that it's a tale of a stalker that is faced with the decision to act on his/her obsession or let go before it turns for the worse. But he/she can't face the truth. They are stuck in their fantasy world and there no turning back for them so they blame the victim for their own obsession and beg to be released from their obsession knowing that they will never be free.
