Todd RundgrenPretending To Care

Today I am your chariot horse Tomorrow I'm your albatross Suspended by the finest thread No one could ever see And when there's breathing in your ear You put your faith in all you hear But just how deep those feelings go I have no way to know I'll never know If I was blind Would you still be my eyes Or hide everything you see Pretending to care about me When all the time You're just wishing I'd fade away You just can't bring yourself to Say out loud the reasons why You won't admit you realize The promise you've been living by Is just an empty shell You'll come to bear it like a cross Then start to tear it like frayed gauze Though I'm ashamed to be afraid I just can't help myself Can't help myself © 2018
