Broken Parachute - Genuine Fake

Genuine Fake

Genuine Fake
Music and Lyrics: Marcus Taylor

You seduce just by the way you groove,
You look like the real deal, yeah, you’re that smooth.
So let me admit right from the start,
That I’m impressed, you’re like a dart to the heart.

But I can tell that something doesn’t quite fit,
It’s a little out of place, can’t put my finger on it.
It’s a feeling down in my soul,
I’ve felt it before, call it damage control

They think that you’re for real,
But hold on, now, lets hesitate,
They’re looking to make this deal,
While I’m here, pulling the brake.
I can see your appeal,
But I can’t help doing a double take.
I don’t care what they feel.
I won’t make this mistake,
Cos you’re a genuine fake.
Yes you’re a genuine fake.

You’ve been so well groomed I can’t find a fault.
You turn on the charm like a frontal assault.
But somewhere deep in your steel blue eyes,
There is a creeping darkness you just can’t hide.

They think that you’re for real,
But hold on, now, lets hesitate,
They’re looking to make this deal,
While I’m here, pulling the brake.
I can see your appeal,
But I can’t help doing a double take.
I don’t care what they feel.
I will not make this mistake,
Cos you’re a genuine fake.

All I want is to be sure,
Of what you’ll do when you walk out the door…
