False Pretense

Album: Don't You Fake It (2007)
  • (It's time to let it go)

    The world's got a funny way of turning round on you
    When a friend tries to stab you right in the face
    Losing faith in everything I hoped and knew
    Don't sweat it; set off false pretense

    Betray, you're not gonna be willing to change
    Yeah, and it doesn't seem likely to fade
    Betray, you're not gonna be willing to change
    'Cause you know

    All alone you know you've got, you've got the best of me
    You were wrong, and I'm laughing right in your face
    I cannot believe you blamed; you were my family
    Don't sweat it; set off false pretense

    Betray, you're not gonna be willing to change
    Yeah, and it doesn't seem likely to fade
    Betray, you're not gonna be willing to change
    'Cause you know

    (It's time to let it go)

    I can't seem to understand it, how you've turned out to be so cold
    It's funny to me how you've turned into such a joke Writer/s: RONNIE WINTER
