Bring forth your heart and lay it down in front of me

Show me charades of promises and tell me of dreams you have planned

Waltz around and parade your undying affection

While I read between the lines and see beyond the colors

Your mardis gras of facade I see right through

See, the grand gesture and parade is not what I want

The simplicity, the truth, was what I was after

And those two, you failed hard at
