Tell me you're mine
Tell me you're mine even though you are not,
Lie to me pretty you know what I want,
Pour me some make-believe, make me believe,
Tell me you love me just lie through your teeth.
Tell me you love me with all that you've got,
Lay it on thick don't let tears put you off,
Pile on the lies while you laugh up your sleeve,
Tell me you're mine you're so good at deceit.
Tell me you miss me and much more besides,
You know how I love a really good lie,
Stoke up the hoax with a mirage of dreams,
Tell me you're mine so that I may believe.
