Counterfeits
by Tenth Avenue North

Album: The Things We've Been Afraid to Say


Verse 1
Why can't I get it through my head?
A screen can't give what it promises
I keep on falling for the trick
Time after time and time again, again

Chorus
I want the truth, I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate, reveal what I'm chasing
It's paper thin, only deep as skin
I'm done with it, counterfeits

Verse 2
In this land of milk and honey
I gave up love to chase my lust, oh yeah
I treated sex like it was money, yeah
And I could never get enough, enough

Chorus
I want the truth, I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate, reveal what I'm chasing
It's paper thin, only deep as skin
I'm done with it, counterfeits

Bridge
Lights, camera, action, make it hard to tell
What is imitation or simply for sale
Pleasure in pictures are promise to fill
But if it don't cost me nothing, I know it's not real

Chorus
I want the truth, I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate, and reveal what I'm chasing
It's paper thin, only deep as skin
I'm done with it, counterfeits
It's paper thin, only deep as skin
I'm done with it, counterfeits
