I could pretend to love you
Be someone else for awhile
Make you believe you're the
one that I want
Give you my heart in disguise

I could be all you've wanted
Make all your dreams come
true, yeah
Surrender my love at the feet
of your will
And live out your fantasy for you

And you would be happy
And I'd make you smile
And I'd go on living a lie

Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you
Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you

I could make you a promise
Be all you want me to be
give you my hand as we walk down
the isle
So you could live happily

And you would be happy
And I'd make you smile
And I'd go on living a lie

Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you
Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you

Cause this is not what I had planned
I hope one day that you will under-
stand
If I could change this heart I would
And say I love you only if I could

Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you

I could be the one to hold you
I could be the one you need
But I could never be the one
To give you everything

I could be the one to hold you
I could be the one you need
But I could never be the one
To give you everything

I could be the one to hold you
I could be the one you need
But I could never be the one
To give you everything

Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you
Do you really want to give your life to
Thinking you found true love when it
hasn't found you

When it hasn't found you

    My OpinionFucking horrible song. I hate it and its message. I can't stop singing it.

    The song is about someone who's been in a relationship for a while and can't say I love you back, because she doesn't feel the same way he does about her. She says she could be everything he'd ever want but she can't because he won't be able to do the same thing for her.
    She's trying to be as kind as possible while trying to be perfectly honest that she just doesn't feel the same way.

    NOTICE how she never directly says that she doesn't love him, she says she would say she loves him if she could.
    With the context of the lyrics her man just asked her to marry him, and she is just unable to commit. She doesn't want to shelve out and settle, because in her eyes she may have found true love, but he hasn't because she can't love him.In a way it's like she's been playing with his heart, but with the song I can't recognize whether its intentional or accidental. Maybe she was hoping she'd eventually fall in love with him? I want to believe she really wants to be able to love him
    "If I could change this heart I would
    And say I love you only if I could"
    but the title of the song is "I could" not "I would" which implies she doesn't want to.

    I fucking hate everything about this song, but I can't help but sing along.
