  • You're never gonna love me, so what's the use?
    What's the point in playing a game you're gonna lose?
    What's the point in saying you love me like a friend?
    What's the point in saying it's never gonna end?

    You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
    You're a coward till the end
    I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
    No, I'm not the type that you like
    Why don't we just pretend?

    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

    You only ever touch me in the dark
    Only if we're drinking can you see my spark
    And only in the evening could you give yourself to me
    'Cause the night is your woman, and she'll set you free

    You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
    You're a coward till the end
    I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
    No, I'm not the type that you like
    Why don't we just pretend?

    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

    (Ooh)
    (Lie-ee-i-ee-ies)

    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
    I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
    I just want it to be perfect
    To believe it's all been worth the fight
    Lies
    Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh Writer/s: Henry Russell Walter, Lukasz Gottwald, Marina Diamandis, Thomas Wesley Pentz
