Paroles The joke

Le - Par .

No matter where I strike, no matter what I say
The dreams are always stronger than the real
My yes never quite as good as hers, maybe

It is the truth that I try to deny
It is a while I pretend I can climb
Yes I can change my bitter to sweet
Swallow the blade then get back on my feet

I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be
I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be

So I come with my best smile
And I'll hide my pain with my pride
So be as blind as you wish me to be
Not a cry nor a tear to reveal my fury
I've got two things I'd be better without
A brain and a heart to remind me again and again
Honey, how easy it is to forget
One who was only a pawn in your own game

I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be
I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be

It is a shame to still be surprised
The trick is old and I should be wise
And yet, I'm always so willing to believe
You can spare a little of what you told me
Now walk away, for heaven's sake
Cool and still will no longer be, all the pain to cradle your ache
'Cause that's the one thing no one'll turn

I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be
I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be

I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be
I know that you know the joke's on me
It always was, shall ever be
