The ones you love to hurt, always the ones you love.
Ashamed of everything you should have been thankful of.
Folks covered up with roses, might even be everyone
But you're just dressing up to go messing up
See you run around everyone in town
The one your thinking of's gone
Not coming back, but pretending's fun

You watch the days go by, dreading them one by one
You love your sleep so much, something that rarely comes.
Folks covered up with roses, might even be everyone

But your just dressing up to go messing up
See you run around everyone in town
The one you're thinking of's gone
Not coming back, but pretending's . . .

Easy to do, I should know -- I've locked away the tears
I want to show, to you, but I don't know.
I don't know

When I see you dressing up to go messing up
See you run around everyone in town
The one you're thinking of's gone
Not coming home, but pretending's fun.

    General Commentwow no commments yet?? I have lived this song: you're really want to be with the one you once were with but deep in your heart you know he ain;t gonna come back. and so you just screw someone else, someone who may even be everyone, you don't really care cuz you still pretend that your love is coming back...even though you know hope is idle, pretending is fun.
