Tell Me a Sweet Lie

Tell me I'm the one, the love of your life.
It's not my fault you won't become my wife
I'll look in your eyes as I dream my dreams.
We can both pretend, it's not what it seems.

I know there's another who holds your heart.
I can't stand that it's ripping mine apart.
So I will take this, just one more night.
Hold me and rock me, till the morning light.

My pain is to great, please whisper sweet lies.
My brain knows what my Heart can't realize.
I'll give you freedom, please let me pretend.
I am not ready, for this love to end.

Tomorrow walk away, that is your chance
I will survive, if you give me one glance

    Thanks Eileen, it placed fairly low but I still like it myself, it almost has the feel of a country song.

    NICEly done Richard! The aspect of playing pretend in order to elongate the 'dream' relationship strangely rings true to many. I like the postponement to tomorrow(tomorrow never comes) - it's always pushed to tomorrow. Well done.
