well you can stay the night
you can look me in the eye
you can fake your way
to the finish line
but don't you dare profess to love me
when you're lying to another
that's not love
that's just wishing
wish and love are not the same thing, yeah

get home
get home
take a look at her
you know
you know
that you love her

mister masquerade
you're getting good at this charade
go on fool yourself
with talk of poetry
don't you dare pretend you're sorry
to me you're just a tourist
you gotta stand next to the real ones
but you know you'll never be one, yeah

get home
get home
nothing more to say
you know
you know
that you'll never change
oh you'll never change
and I don't play the game
with liars and cowards
liars and cowards
with liars and cowards
like you

get home
get home
nothing more to say
you know
you know
that you'll never change
oh you'll never change
and I don't play the game
with liars and cowards
liars and cowards
with liars and cowards
like you
with liars and cowards
liars and cowards
liars and cowards
like you

    General Comment“This is the most straightforward narrative I think I’ve ever written. This has happened a few times in my life, these sorts of relationships. I wondered why I was on something of a tape loop in that respect. I had all this anger and bitterness and I wanted to close this chapter completely. Instead of writing little songs about these individual let-downs or betrayals, I just wanted to put it in one song and be done with it. Funnily enough, it was like this song was a charm. The moment I wrote it, it was as if I purged this demon and I knew it would never happen again."
