"Love In Disguise" lyrics - TODD RUNDGREN

"Love In Disguise"

Sometimes things fall apart
That's god's love in disguise
And when I break your heart
That's my love in disguise

When you awake in pain
It should come as no surprise
I'm not sure I care
But it still must be there
My love in disguise
And all you want are sweet lies

I see my problem now
Her love was in disguise
Some fear that won't allow
Her love to shed this guise

Ian, don't be a fool
Look what she's done
She'll do it again

Pale, pure, and virgin things
So frail, it turns from my eyes
It hides while I become
So hurt my heart is numb
When love is in disguise

The best you have is sweet lies

Ian she'll be our downfall
Don't believe your eyes
Lies! and she'll leave you all alone

Possessiveness and jealousy
We recognize easily
That which we claim to prize
No one can recognize

The poor young sap is unaware of
Things that we are all aware of
The knife she hides behind her back
Misery! he gets his share of

The flowers must pollinate
The beasts are forced to mate
Woman and man decide
Yet we're not satisfied
God's love is in disguise
And all we want are sweet lies
Sweet lies

Long live the glorious revolution
