Lyrics

Verse:
You bagged me up inside a week
In your last letter
Pulled the rug beneath my feet
Bet you think you?re clever
You always said you?d love me till the end
Funny how, you just play pretend

Verse:
You closed the door and left the blame
With the other side
Tell me that it?s time for change
Caught you in that lie
You always said our love would never bend
Funny how it breaks when you pretend

Chorus:
Help me now cause no one understands
Why you ran away and what went to your head
And all of those pretty things you said
Don?t mean a thing cause I know you pretend

Verse:
You caught me faced the other way
A double deal
Turns out I had over-stayed
Your short welcome
You always said you?d be there to defend
Funny you accuse me in the end

Chorus:
Help me now cause no one understands
Why you ran away and what went to your head
And all of those pretty things you said
Don?t mean a thing cause I know you pretend

Bridge:
Now that you?re gone
It?s not that funny anymore
Now that you?re gone
My love

Verse:
Though you?re certain of yourself
I?m looking closer
I?ve seen it all a thousand times
Miss Pretender
You always knew you had the upper hand
But I?m for real and you need to pretend

Chorus/Outro:
Help me now cause no one understands
Why you ran away and what went to your head
And all of those pretty things you said
Don?t mean a thing cause I know you pretend
Help me now, I need to understand
Why you said the things you said with no regret
If nothing else I thought I had a friend
Funny how you just play pretend
Funny how you just play pretend
