Official Music Video by Ricardo Kump: youtu.be/WC5_SWeXNjw


I can't pretend it's so cold
When it's summertime
I can't pretend that I feel like home
I always wander around

I can't pretend I'm not tamed
Where you see me in chains
I can't pretend I'm side by side
During a lifetime

How could I feel fine surrounded by all these lies?
Is this all about bringing a mask along?

I can't pretend I'm so fast
It suffocates my chest
I can't pretend that I'm okay
You spat in my face

I can't pretend I'm not bored
Whether I live a love story
I can't pretend that I really care
I need some more dare

How could I feel fine selling a false self-portrait?
Is this all about one more act to swear?
I guess I felt fine bleeding water from a frozen heart
But my blood is warm even if you don't like

Meanwhile I'm incomplete

We can't stand it
We wanna live a dream of perfection
It doesn't matter
It's not gonna seem like a rejection

How could I feel fine making a deal that I couldn't keep?
It's the prettiest sign that you've ever seen
Is this all about missing a kind of deadline?
So I guess that's all
Take me where I belong
