The Lyrics

Pushin'... the envelope...
Down, truly going down?
Come, no? Come, no?
Down, truly going down?
Come, no? Come, no?
Down, truly going down?
Faking love is hard on you!

I sent her love away from me.
'Cause I know it ain't reality.
When she moans, it just ain't true.
See, faking love is hard on you!

Remember when she held me tight?
Soon I figured out it wasn't right.
All this time, her lying grew.
And faking love is hard on you!

They say that faking love is hard on you.
Now I know, I know that it's true.
I see, she would just pretend.
When she was shaking up
I know that she was faking love again!

I beg of you, don't tell no lie.
Must be honest if you want this guy.
If I'm bad, just tell me true.
'Cause faking love is hard on you.

(I see that faking love is hard on you.)
Now you know, you know that it's true.
(Don't fret, I will not pretend.)
When you are shaking up
I hope you won't be faking love again!

I beg of you, don't tell no lie.
Must be honest if you want this guy.
If I'm bad, just tell me true.
'Cause faking love is hard on you.

Down, truly going down?
Come, now! Come, now!
Down, truly going down?
Come, now! Come, now!
Down, truly going down?
Come, now! Come, now!
(repeat 'til fade... of your own strength)

Pretty good, Mike. A few more LOL lines would have sent this over the edge, but made up brilliantly with the "down, truly going down" stanzas. 555

Agreed with Kristof--the "down truly going down" bit is inspired.

Yes, very good use of nonsense refrain in OS. 00000 (Five fake O's).

(i really voted 111, but men will believe anything if it's what they want to hear.)

Well, you know it isn't faked when you get an athiest to scream 'Oh God'. But, I am a gentleman. Ladies come first... (better stop before I shred the envelope!)
