She pretends it's you when she's giving him her mouth
Her words, her tenderness
She pretends it's you who's holding her and showing her compassion
When he wants her nakedness
She pretends you're sharing secrets with her
Never holding back the truth
She pretends you're stealing moments together
Arm in arm with you when she's with him

She pretends you're laughing and crying together
Swimming in waves of endless pleasure
She pretends you're touching her face with yours
When he's turning in his sleep
She makes believe she can hear your voice telling her you understand everything that she's feeling
When he doesn't say a word
She believes you understand her more than he ever will
Even though you're barely friends

Oh oh oh
No -- she just can't get it right
No matter how hard she try
No matter what she do
She still pretends it's you

She was on of your disciples long before you drew her in
Worshipped the safety of your embrace
There are pagan gods and demagogues and ordinary men
You sing to her, and romance is your name (She pretends)
Never worries about, never harbors a doubt
You're the fabric that she clings to
Wrap her up in binding gravity
Like an alienated lover who's been robbing herself blind
Pretending she's a thief but the only thing she steals is time
She's gonna take in her hands
She's gonna spend it all on you
Until she's broke without a moment left to spare
She's building up immunities
Building up immunities
And that's all she's ever done

Oh oh oh
No -- she just can't get it right
No matter how hard she try
No matter what she do
She still pretends it's you
No matter how hard she try
No matter what she do
No -- she just can't get it right
'Cause she still pretends it's you

Even though you're barely friends
Romance is your name
She pretends
Romance is your name
She pretends
No -- she just can't get it right
Romance is your name
No matter how hard she try
Romance is your name
She pretends
Romance is your name
She pretends
