Can't Pretend


I can't pretend
To feel the love that isn't there
But I try anyway
I can't pretend
That everything is right with you here
But I make it seem that way
I can't pretend that this doesn't hurt
But I do anyway.

You look at me with such love
I have to turn away in fear
That you'll see my true feelings
You love me, but I love another
But I pretend to love you
I can't bear to see you hurting
So I pretend to love you
So I can see that smile cross your face.

    twin this is filled with deep emotion about him, you want him to be happy but you cant pretend that you love him when you love someone else it doesnt work that way,
    listen to every word,
    love,

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
