The Perfect Couple.

 

We are the perfect couple, you and I,

The one they all aspire to be;

But they don’t see the real you

Or know the real me.

 

They’ve convinced themselves that

You and me, we have the perfect life,

You’ve got the ideal husband,

I’ve got the ideal wife.

 

And look here we are,

Just putting on a show,

Smiles and happy faces,

Holding hands

Those secret glances

Read wrong of course

For to see the truth

Would bring that castle

Made of celluloid

Crashing to the ground.

 

They are blind to it all

Vindictive eyes

Shallow lies,

Words that tear our world apart.

Is it art,

The display

We parade

For the gullible

To believe;

They’re so easy to please.

Just feed them that

Fairytale romance

Of love

That conquers all.

 

They look at the photos, watch the films,

Foolish people will believe what’s said

They want to see what is backing up

The myths by the media they’ve been fed.

 

The princess and prince they painted

Well, you know, they never were real,

Just a fantasy we starred in and

Divorce was not the deal.
