When do you fall

Do I pretend to embrace 
My fake feelings 
Let you believe 
That I still love you 
As you love me 

Let the fake feelings 
Save you because
I know you're sinking down 

Pretend to be someone I'm not 
To save the person you are 

I didn't mean to fake them 
Didn't mean to let you fall 
So I hide the real me 
So you won't lose it all 

These fake feelings the only thing 
That keeps you breathing anymore 

On the edge of a cliff 
The only thing keeping you 
From jumping in is 
My hand in yours 
But I don't feel a thing 
When do I stop pretending?
