Delicate Fabrication


I'm right here while she's on the other side of the room

Teacher's at her desk paying no mind

Like a snake, you weave your way over to flirt with her

Leaving me all alone to unwind


I see the look on your face

I know you're in a special place

Your cheeks bursting with pink and your eyes

Your eyes won't allow me to think about


Anything but you

Just what can I do?

I'm stuck playing such an awkward role

I need to feel loved

And not so hurt

I'm burnt

And this routine is getting old


Truth be told, lately, I haven't been honest with you

You asked me just how I felt right then

I gave you some hints, but you are still so damn clueless

Let me unwind again


I see the look in your eyes

I know all you do is fantasize

Of her adorable smile and laugh

And this jelousy permits me from dreaming of


Anything but you

Just what can I do?

I'm stuck playing such an awkward role

I need to feel loved

And not so hurt

I'm burnt

And this routine is getting old


So leave, go now

Leave me

All, all, all

Alone

Leave, go now

Leave me

Leave me to unwind!


Let me think about

Anything but you

Just what can I do?

I'm stuck playing such an awkward role

I need to feel loved

And not so hurt

I'm burnt

And this routine is getting old


And now I know

Just what I can't show

I'm trapped, being such a frigid liar

I need to feel loved

And not so scarred

I'm charred

I need your smile to inspire me


All you'll ever know is

A delicate fabrication

Of the brutal truth I don't show
