well I sleep with you
but you dream of him
and pretend every touch of my hand is his
you lead me on
in the same trip
I can tell by your eyes
what you truly feel, oh

I tuck you in
after you drink
I take advantage
of this opportunity
but I lay awake
thinking of her
and you just put your hands on me
as you have before

I am yours
and you are mine
just as we go on pretending tonight
we both know
this is make believe
I dont believe you when you said
I swept you off your feet

We'll both fake it
pretend we'll make it
make it as we have
with a past lover x2

Close your eyes
and drift fast asleep
as I pleasure you
with my company
my eyes are fake
because I'm staying awake
how can I sleep dreaming of her with you next to me?

We'll both fake it
pretend we'll make it
make it as we have
with a past lover x2

    General CommentI think that this song is about two people who are trying to get over their "past lovers".
    So that's why they're together.
    But they're only trying to fool themselves into feeling as though they're over their ex-lovers and are in love with eachother.

    General CommentIts obvious what this song is about...

    It's about two people who are together but theyre both pretending theyre happy when theyre not. It seems mostly physical aswell, but its not what he really wants, he wants to be with "her" who is a "past lover" so basically an ex who he cant get over.

    Nice song, different to their other stuff. I like it a lot :D
