Brilliant Disguise Lyrics

I hold you in my arms as the band plays

What are those words whispered
just as you turn away?
I saw you last night out on the edge of town

I wanna read your mind to know just what I've got
in this new thing I found.
So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you
or just a brilliant disguise?

I heard somebody call your name from underneath our willow

I saw something tucked in shame underneath your pillow.
I've tried so hard
but I just can't see
What a woman like you is doing with me.
So tell me who I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you
or just a brilliant disguise?

Now look at me
struggling to do everything right
And then it all falls apart
when out go the lights.
I'm just a lonely pilgrim
I walk this world in wealth

I wanna know if it's you I don't trust

'Cause I damn sure don't trust myself.

Now you play the loving woman
I play the faithful man

But just don't look too close into the palm of my hand.
We stood at the altar
the gypsy swore our future was right

But come the wee wee hours
the gypsy lied.
So when you look at me you better look hard and look twice:
Is that me
or just a brilliant disguise?

Tonight our bed is cold
I'm lost in the darkness of our love

God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of.
