 You can fake it, hold my hand

If you fake it, I will understand

A5 
(A/E                F#m/C#   D               Bm )
 I don't care if you fake it, I don't give a damn
(F#m                   A/C      D         Bm)
   I don't care if you fake it, don't you understand?

(F#m                     A/C#       D                   Bm
   You might laugh at me later, but why not smile at me now
A/E                     F#m/C#   D                     Bm)     
 Don't ever feel like a traitor, you're not letting me down

D               (Cadd9)        
Fake it, fake it, I can take it
G                            G5    B5 C5 A5
Love's just an end, it's the means we feel

Fake it, fake it, I can make it

 Why not pretend that your love is real
D      (Bm)  G
Why not fake it?

I'm going to ask you to act it, don't let me see if you're bored
If you use the right tactic, you will hear me applaud

I don't mind what you're thinking, I'll just guess what you feel
Don't regret you've been drinking to make your pleasure look real

[repeat chorus]
Fake it, fake it, I can take it 
I don't believe in eternity
Fake it, fake it, help me make it 
I've taken leave of all dignity
Why not fake it?

[bridge]
F                                    
 I am prepared to put up with this because I love you so much and 
                Eb                                                 
I know that you probably don't love me in the same way
           Bb
But if you care for me at all then take me in your arms

F              C
 Fabricate the way you feel
G                            D 
 I'll just pretend that it's all for real
D             E
Fake it anyway, yeah

Why not pretend that your love is real
