No Pretender

No Pretender Lyrics
I’d rather suffer than hurt another
Especially those who trust in me
But when your heart pounds, free of all doubt, for someone else
It’s gonna cause injury

But a lie, to say we fit from the start
A lie, to say we were a work of art
A lie, to deny my heart
And play the part

I wish I could mend the face I saw when
I broke all our plans and broke your trust
And I’m sorry, god I’m sorry
But what I said was true, the lie was us

A lie to say we could’ve made it through
A lie to say you weren’t unfaithful too
A lie to stay with you
You know it’s true

You’re no pretender, I’ll always remember
You said there’s three kinds of people on Earth
And you and me are number three
Well I agree, but we’re not meant to be

A lie to say we fit from the start
A lie to say we were a work of art
A lie to deny my heart
And play the part
A lie to say we could’ve made it through
A lie to say you weren’t unfaithful too
A lie to stay with you
You know it’s true

The heart is untamable and uncontrollable. Sometimes what it wants is tragically inconvenient. ‘No Pretender’ is about leaving my girlfriend for my best friend and how difficult it was to be honest about true feelings, knowing they would hurt someone close to me.
