Pretending I Don't Love You

You don't know what it's like,

Having to go through each day pretending.

Pretending that I don't love you.

Covering up my feelings

Day by day

Wishing things were different,

Yet knowing they'll always be the same

Being your friend,

Yet wanting to be more.

Wanting you with such desire

Desire that burns within like fire.

Fire that burns day and night

There's never any relief in sight.

What to do?

How can I tell you?

Show you what I feel.

And make you see that for once

The feelings are actually real

I've never felt like this

Never wanted anyone so bad

You're the best thing to happen to me

And you're not even mine!

I sit with you, laughing and joking

And you don't know

You don't understand.

Alas, no one does. No one but my heart.

My heart. Oh, it aches so!

My heart, it feels like it's breaking in two

Breaking in two, at the very thought of you.

You don't know what it's like,

Having to go through each day pretending.

Pretending that I don't love you.

Covering up my feelings

Day by day

Wishing things were different,

Yet knowing they'll always be the same
