Brilliant Disguise
Springsteen, Bruce
I hold you in my arms
as the band plays
What are those words whispered baby
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 Iīve got in this new thing Iīve found
So tell me what I see
when I look in your eyes
Is that you baby
or just a brilliant disguise

I heard somebody call your name
from underneath our willow
I saw something tucked in shame
underneath your pillow
Well Iīve tried so hard baby
but I just canīt 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 baby
or just a brilliant disguise

Now look at me baby
struggling to do everything right
And then it all falls apart
when out go the lights
Iīm just a lonely pilgrim
I walk this world in wealth
I want to know if itīs you I donīt trust
īcause I damn sure donīt trust myself

Now you play the loving woman
Iīll play the faithful man
But just donīt look too close
into the palm of my hand
We stood at the alter
the gypsy swore our future was right
But come the wee wee hours
Well maybe baby the gypsy lied
So when you look at me
you better look hard and look twice
Is that me baby
or just a brilliant disguise

Tonight our bed is cold
Iīm lost in the darkness of our love
God have mercy on the man
Who doubts what heīs sure of
