When I tell you all my lies
And pretending to believe them
See through all my alibis
And I need you more than ever
And I want you till the end... Chloe
How you handle what you live through
I can never hope to learn
Taking all the pain I give you
Loving blindly in return
And I need you more than ever
I will always be your friend
Chloe, Chloe
