"Fake It" as written by and Daniel Campbell Smith Mark Crew....
And I don't think that that's a selfish want, I really don't
I'm not saying that I have this capacity
Because it's hard to develop that capacity on your own
When you're being stopped at every turn

Drive around, night time, nowhere to go
Melt me down, I'm like wax to your jokes
Lost and found, knocking heads, laying low
And there's no point reliving crimes to lose this

Still wanna waste all of my time
I wanna waste all of my time
Still wanna waste all of my time
I wanna waste all of my time
With you

Oh my lover, my lover, my love
We can never go back
We can only do our best to recreate
Don't turn over, turn over the page
We should rip it straight out
Then let's try our very best to fake it

Show me joy, flower through disarray
Let's destroy, each mistake that we made
Then restore the color back to the grey
There's no pride in sharing scars to prove it

Still wanna waste all of my time
I wanna waste all of my time
Still wanna waste all of my time
I wanna waste all of my time
With you

Oh my lover, my lover, my love
We can never go back
We can only do our best to recreate
Don't turn over, turn over the page
We should rip it straight out
Then let's try our very best to fake it

Help me turn a blind eye
Days and nights we lost to weakness
Help me turn a blind eye
Days and nights we lost to weakness

Oh my lover, my lover, my love
We can never go back
We can only do our best to recreate
So don't turn over, turn over the page
We should rip it straight out
Then let's do our very best to fake it
Oh my lover, my lover, my love
We can never go back
We can only do our best to recreate
Don't turn over, turn over the page
We should rip it straight out
Then let's do our very best to fake it

    My InterpretationThis song is about a failed relationship that doesn't seem to be working. The writer realizes this but is still willing to give it a try and to work at it. At the same time he asking that the two of them start fresh and to "Fake It" as if the mistakes that were made never happened.

    My Opinion"Melt me down, I'm like wax to your jokes"
    More than likely the woman in this failed relationship is melting him down by relating to others his failures and mistakes

    Song FactIn an interview, Dan Smith said
    It’s from the old documentary about relationships, and it’s about a couple in therapy working through those issues. It sounds like such an old clip; I love that as well. I guess the song sort of looks at how people fuck up all the time, but sometimes it’s easier to keep something going because more of it makes you happy and more of it’s fun than the stuff that’s bad. So yeah, it’s just sort of an exploration of that.
