I'm a fake

By Jaded Ireland

I took a dream and made it real
Took a stone and made it feel
Took a knife and made it bleed
Took a thing and made it me

I've never been myself it seems
Always playing, pretending scenes
I don't have an unlearned thought
The one you loved
I am not

He took my dream and made it real
Took my heart and made it feel
Took my love and made it bleed
Took my words and haunted me

He's never been himself to me
Always hiding secret things
I don't understand his pain
Or why he changes everyday

I've loved him for years
And months
I've seen him cry
Only once

But he cared for me when I was her
