Stop Pretending

Stop pretending you love me,
stop pretending you care,
You can't fake it,
it's like you're not really there.
You see my face,
you know my heart,
so why don't you 
leave without a trace,
like you wanted to 
from the start.
Just go if you want to,
I'll be ok.
I love you babe,
but today is a new day.
I can't keep putting up 
with all these fights.
They're the reason why
I'm up on these lonely nights.
The tears will fall,
my heart will break,
but you don't have to call,
I don't want it to be a mistake.
That's why you should stop pretending,
cause you know
you're fooling me.
All these games
are so condescending,
but you're just 
too blind to see.
Fight after fight
I get so tired.
Up night after night 
thinking about how
you're such a good liar.
Babe,
this is not how
it's supposed to be,
so maybe we should
stop pretending 
that there's still a you and me.
