Track Name: The Pretenders
I've gone stinging with the bee's
That I pretended I couldn't see
And I've caught myself apologizing
But I've yet to find my own security
Just to feel...

I've helped ignite my own personal bomb
I've been bad so I can move on
I've fallen in love with a dilettante
Kept pretending I was strong
Just to feel love...

I've invented opinions that I didn't have
Just to paint a picture I pretended you could have
In my own head I have busted my cap
Fallen under my own attack
To feel anything at all...
