Lletra / Lyrics: Brilliant Disguise - Springsteen, Bruce
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 Ive got in this new thing Ive 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 Ive tried so hard baby
but I just cant 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
Im just a lonely pilgrim
I walk this world in wealth
I want to know if its you I dont trust
cause I damn sure dont trust myself

Now you play the loving woman
Ill play the faithful man
But just dont 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
Im lost in the darkness of our love
God have mercy on the man
Who doubts what hes sure of
