-I Think It's Time We Stopped Pretending-

Verse 1:

"Forgive me.
I know that it was not your fault,
regardless of the hurt you've caused.
I turned my eyes away.

Please forgive me,
I offend with every word I say,
I do it every second, every day.
Just turn those pretty little lying eyes away. "

Chorus:

"I stare at the tick, I stare at the tok,
but no time can change the hurt that we have done to ourselves.
It's in my nature to refuse your help.

I stare at the grandfather, stare at the clock,
as you turn to leave me behind.
I need your help,
but I don't want your help.
I think it's time we stopped pretending. "

Verse 2:

"Please persuade me.
That little dress of yours reminds me why,
that I fell deeper for the skin inside.
Here we go again.
Please believe me,
before you pack your case and walk your way.
God damn it, why am I so quick to change?
Go ahead and run away!"

Chorus:

"I stare at the tick, I stare at the tok,
but no time can change the hurt that we have done to ourselves.
It's in my nature to refuse your help.

I stare at the grandfather, stare at the clock,
as you turn to leave me behind.
I need your help,
but I don't want your help.
I think it's time we stopped pretending. "

Verse 3:

"(Ba...By...Ba...By...Ba...By..Ba...By)"
"Please, please tell me you can't decide,
between the part of you that's bad or nice.
Just like me. (Isn't that why we're together?)
Please honey!
I know I'm not the only one,
Now say I'm right or say I'm wrong.
Before we walk away...because damn it we need to walk away."
"Ba...By...Ba...By...Ba...By...Ba...By..."

Chorus:

"I stare at the tick, I stare at the tok,
but no time can change the hurt that we have done to ourselves.
It's in my nature to refuse your help.

I stare at the grandfather, stare at the clock,
as you turn to leave me behind.
I need your help,
but I don't want your help.
I think it's time we stopped pretending. "

    Although the writing is good and the descriptions are vivd, this one-shot is very clearly a first chapter of a much larger story. Rowe mentions that writers block kicked in, which would explain the disconnect between the characters, but still doesn't make up for the fact that readers a left slightly confused and wanting more.
