SONGWRITING

Pretend

By: Laura Alford

Trying to pretend
This feeling good
Will never end
Trying to pretend
That we’re
Just friends
Trying to pretend
That your heart’s
Not on the mend
Trying to unbend
While we play
Pretend

Yeah. yeah,
We’re just buddies
Keep it light,
Keep it funny
Call me over
Just to play
You know you’re leaving
Anyway

Trying to pretend
This feeling good
Will never end
Trying to pretend
That we’re
Just friends
Trying to pretend
That your heart’s
Not on the mend
Trying to unbend
While we play pretend

Whoever it was
That thought
That good times
Can be bought
With pocket change
And not a heart
Those guys
They ain’t too smart

Trying to pretend
This feeling good
Will never end
Trying to pretend
That we’re
Just friends
Trying to pretend
That your heart’s
Not on the mend
Trying to unbend
While we play pretend
(repeat)
