Quotes / Broken Ace

and as bold as the moon

You pretend what you say you feel
You pretend that you're something special
All the lies that you hide behind

Nothing wrong, nothing real inside
All I see is a perfect lie.
I don't want your perfect life

'Cause they can see the flame that's in her eyes
Watch her when she's lighting up the night

And it's a lonely world...
