You Canít Pretend Forever

 

One fine mess after the other

You havenít been the same since you lost your mother

One fine day through thick and thin

Youíll finally feel like you were meant to fit in

In and out of your cynical mind

Lookiní for the hope that makes you shine

Is like lookiní for a shower in a submarine

Or tryiní to keep a cup of water in your wedding ring

 

You try to quit, but it takes its toll

And youíre much more fun when you lose control

You can hide your face when you need to cry

But you canít pretend forever that youíll never have to say goodbye

 

Now the days go by and the nights get long

And you have to stay awake until the thrill is gone

But then it goes away and you still donít sleep

Thereís a shower of a million secrets that you keep

The ones that tell us you can never be alone

Why you have to feel strange, or you donít feel at home

Why you donít feel calm unless thereís mass confusion

A little more cryiní and some more pollution

 

You try to quit, but it takes its toll

And youíre much more fun when you lose control

You can hide your face when you need to cry

But you canít pretend forever that youíll never have to say goodbye

 

Now the days go by and the nights get longer

What doesnít kill youís gonna make you stronger

They try to warn you, but itís all just noise

Life is better when youíre with the boys

Tell us why you can never ever be alone

Why you have to feel strange, or you donít feel at home

Why you donít feel calm unless thereís mass confusion

How you ended up in an institution

 

You try to quit, but it takes its toll

And youíre much more fun when you lose control

You can hide your face when you need to cry

But you canít pretend forever that youíll never have to

You try to quit, but it takes its toll

And youíre much more fun when you lose control

You can hide your face when you need to cry

But you canít pretend forever that youíll never have to goodbye
