about

You might not think it, but I can tell when you’re being genuine and when you’re hiding something.

lyrics

Well I was thinking ‘bout the message you sent last night
Telling me things are going well
Said you’d come see me, when everything had worked itself out
But you ain’t so perfect, I can tell

Behind your expression lies a fear of getting caught
You know I’ve got you figured out
They’ve got you wrapped up in their world of disarray
And you’ve been numb to all your doubt

CHORUS:
Tell me I’m wrong
Tell me that you’re OK honey
I can ease my worried mind
Tell me I’m wrong
‘Cause I’ve been down the road you’re chasing
I can see you’re wasting your time
Tell me I’m wrong

Given the choices, I’m never ever gonna come first
You’ll always find another way
You get a call from your palace, telling you to come back home
It’s getting close to judgement day

High atop the tower, somebody’s pulling your strings
You can’t control yourself no more
You’re following shadows, thinking heaven isn’t far away
The warning signs you just ignore

(CHORUS)

Keep on trading misery for all the things you think you see in their lies
But I know the game they play, and every time you go their way it’s a compromise
Not gonna fall for their disguise

(CHORUS)
