Oingo Boingo - Can't Pretend Lyrics




You thought you were my best friend
But I don't wonder why
I never felt too comfortable around you but I lied
There was something about the way you touched me late at night
You made me wanna forget the fact that something wasn't right.

But I just don't know what's happening to me anymore

And I feel...?

(But) I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself
I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself...

I'd like to talk to you, I'd like to touch your mind
I'd like to run my fingers over your design
Sometimes I even like the lying and the pain
And all the agony that goes with this old game.

But when you say you love me something doesn't jive
And I feel...?

(But) I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself
I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself...

(But) I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself
I can't (I can't)
Pretend anymore. I'm just (I'm just)
Beside myself...

    The verses remind me very much of the Lost Like This verses. Very cool. I'd never heard this one before.

  4. Oingo Boingo Tapes

    You thought you were my best friend, but I don't wonder why
    I never felt too comfortable around you, but I lied

    There was something about the way you touched me late at night
    It made me want to forget the fact that something wasn't right

    But I just don't know what's happening to me anymore
    And I feel like bad people play some part

    I can't pretend anymore
    I'm just beside myself

    I'd like to talk to you, I'd like to touch your mind
    I'd like to run my fingers over your design
    Sometimes I even like the lying and the pain
    And all the agony that goes with this old game

    But when you say you love me, something doesn't jive
    And I feel like bad people play some part

    I can't pretend anymore
    I'm just beside myself

    I love you
