"Deception"

Here we are together -
Me in another man's place
While you walk beside me
In another woman's shoes
Aren't we quite the pair?

In your mind I am him
While your heart knows
That I can never be
While my lips whisper to you
Words intended for her

My pretense, your illusion
Perfectly matched dangers
The double fantasy
Serving its purpose
Fulfilling our needs

I will never let on
Knowing your secret
Praying you will never
Hear her name
While I talk in my sleep
