"Fake" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
You're telling me I should forget you
But why..
And your talking like I never knew you
But that's a lie..

And you're playing out your game again
Why are you never on my side,

And your telling me I should forget you

Come on the guy's a fake
What do you love him for.
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
What are we crying for.

You're telling me I will regret you
But so..
And your talking like I should expect to
But you'll never know..

And he's left you in the rain again
And you were always on my mind
And your telling me I should forget you

Come on the guy's a fake
What do you love him for.
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
What are we crying for.

I don't know anymore..

    General Commentthe damien rice story is a load of crap. just all made up. glen said it onstage, that damien's a friend of his and it's not about him at all.

    General Commentthink this song is about regret..
    A person losing someone to someone else that doesnt love the person as much as he does.

    General CommentI don't get the first interpretation, but whatev.

    This song is incredibly powerful. Anyone who has ever seen them play it live knows this! Plus, if you know anything about Glen and have ever meet him, you know he isn't a greedy about fame and he is very humble. Also, he is as Irish as it gets, especially when it comes to women and loneliness. Definitely about a woman.

    General Commentumm yeah the frames and damien are friends. and damien rice puts the frames songs in the middle of his. thats how i found out about them. the first comment is really dumb.'look inside of your subconcious mind' OK... well anyway, its about a girl that leaves still in love and now shes found someone new so shes trying to cover it up and just says forget her but he knows. he kicked through his door. he knows.
