  • Keeping up appearances
    Keeping up with the Joneses
    Fooling my selfish heart
    Going through the motions

    But I'm fooling myself
    I'm fooling myself

    'Cause you say you love me
    And then you do it again
    You do it again
    You say your sorry's
    And then you do it again
    You do it again

    Everybody thinks you're well
    Everybody thinks I'm ill
    Watching me fall apart
    Falling under your spell

    But you're fooling yourself
    Your fooling yourself

    'Cause you say you love me
    And then you do it again
    You do it again
    You say your sorry's
    And then you do it again
    You do it again, again and again and again and again

    But you're fooling yourself
    You're fooling yourself

    'Cause you say you love me
    And then you do it again
    You do it again
    You say your sorry's
    Then you do it again
    You do it again

    you say you love me
    And then you do it again
    You do it again
    You say your sorry's
    And then you do it again
    You do it again, again and again and again and again Writer/s: Francis Healy
