Paul Gordon – All This Time Lyrics

[Jervis Pendleton]
There is no such man
He does not exist
No matter how hard you insist
There is no old gentleman to see
All this time
Daddy has been me

I am just a fool
An imposter, and a fake
Like the lady of the lake
I’m drowning in the waves
Of my deceit
But rescued by your face
Each time we meet

If I tell you the truth at last
Would I lose your esteemed affection?
Would you hate me and curse my name?
I only have myself to blame

Why upset you now?
When we could still be friends?
As the truth just slightly bends
I’m happy in my mad hypocrisy
Pretending I’m the man
I’ll never be
