“Brilliant Disguise” by Bruce Springsteen

I’m just a lonely pilgrim. I walk this world in wealth. I want to know if it’s you I don’t trust ’cause I damn sure don’t trust myself.”

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 I’ve got in this new thing I’ve found

I heard somebody call your name
From underneath our willow
I saw something tucked in shame
Underneath your pillow

Now look at me baby
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 want to know if it’s you I don’t trust
‘Cause I damn sure don’t trust myself

Now you play the loving woman
I’ll play the faithful man
But just don’t 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
I’m lost in the darkness of our love

I'm routinely overestimated.
