lyrics

Painted a picture and let it dry
Over night
Some peace of mind
In letting it lie down
Daisy will wait

I might have guessed when I went to bed
That instead
The canvas bled
Image distorted
A chorus of voices sings
Maybe it's for the best

I said im just pretending
I think I found an ending after all
I hope you’re not pretending
You know im not pretending anymore

This is what it sounds like
When I know you're coming by
I said I'm just pretending

Measured my future in make believe
Figurines
Made of steam
Ballerinas
Have you seen them turn into the wind

I said im just pretending
I think I found an ending after all
I hope you’re not pretending
You know im not pretending anymore

This is what it sounds like
When I know you're coming by
I hope you're not pretending
This is what it looks like
When I'm coming back to life
You know I’m not pretending

Up in smoke
There it goes
Oh no
Nostalgia’s just a dirty word

Painting sold
A dancer chokes
Oh yes
And yesterday is not so cold

This is what it sounds like
When I know you're coming by
I hope you're not pretending
This is what it looks like
When I'm coming back to life
You know I'm not pretending
