Fairytales Tell Tales lyrics

let?s pretend were not needy
let?s pretend our hearts still beat
let?s pretend we fall in love tonight
clumsy enough to fall for anything

we?ll stumble on our words
we?ll spill our guts on creaking bar stools
below the neon blue

low lives hiding in dives
there?s no feeling in drinking sleeping with strangers
ghosts passing through bedrooms unaware
a faint reflection on the barback?s mirror
a face i never knew whispering,
?please don?t be a stranger to me.
who are you if you?re alone?

you?re no good at pretending
all my plays have tragic endings
you wish i was a fairy tale
this frog will never change anything

just pretend that you?re in love
that scolding sun is bound to come up eventually

so who is it that whispers in your ear?
a haunting voice blows in through the window

there?s no feeling floating over beds
a needy pleading apparition
crying ?who am i if i am alone?
i hardly exist at all.?

let?s pretend that we don?t need anything anymore from anyone.
i don?t want to feel anything anymore let?s just pretend
well live happily ever after
