    Waiting around for a miracle
    Looking at me for a clue
    I'm moving on, if it's the same to you
    Too late for me, too late for you

    On and on, changing like the weather
    Close your eyes, no surprise is in store
    Look me straight in the eye, when you tell me that lie
    I can't have it though, I can't take it, no, over and over again.
    Who's fakin' the blues?
    Who's breakin' the rules?
    While tryin' to fool
    Fakin' the blues.

    Isn't it time for a turnaround
    Isn't it time that you knew
    I never thought that I would say to you,
    You carry on, I'll survive

    On and on, changing like the weather
    Close your eyes, no surprise is in store
    Look me straight in the eye, when you tell me that lie
    I can't have it though, I can't take it, no, over and over again.
    Who's fakin' the blues?
    Who's breakin' the rules?
    While tryin' to fool
    Fakin' the blues.

    Maybe by now you'll be satisfied
    Looking to me like you do
    What do you feel burning inside of you?
    Living a lie, don't have to try

    On and on, changing like the weather
    Close your eyes, no surprise is in store
    Look me straight in the eye, when you tell me that lie
    I can't have it though, I can't take it, no, over and over again.
    Who's fakin' the blues?
    Who's breakin' the rules?
    Who's fakin' the blues?
    Who's breakin' the rules?
    Who's fakin' the blues?
