Fakin' It

ŠPaul Simon, released on Bookends (Simon and Garfunkel) 1968

.

When she goes, she's gone.

If she stays, she stays here.

The girl does what she wants to do.

She knows what she wants to do.

And I know I'm fakin' it,

I'm not really makin' it.

.

I'm such a dubious soul,

And a walk in the garden

Wears me down.

Tangled in the fallen vines,

Pickin' up the punch lines,

I've just been fakin' it,

Not really makin' it.

.

Is there any danger?

No, no, not really.

Just lean on me.

Takin' time to treat

Your friendly neighbors honestly.

I've just been fakin' it,

I'm not really makin' it.

This feeling of fakin' it--

I still haven't shaken it.

.

Prior to this lifetime

I surely was a tailor, look at me...

("Good morning, Mr. Leitch.

Have you had a busy day?")

I own the tailor's face and hands.

I am the tailor's face and hands and

I know I'm fakin' it,

I'm not really makin' it.

This feeling of fakin' it--

I still haven't shaken it.
