pretend.

i did it on a lark, baby,
gave away my heart,
sold it for a song, really, 
i traded any feelings i harbored
for something that sounded soothing,
i traded any meaning it offered 
for what seemed an improvement.

so dear, oh dear, let's pretend
we haven't made these promises
we've no intention to keep.

let's hear your lament, baby girl
the silence of your heart,
solemn and seeking solace,
you traded away our dreams
for something seeming sound,
traded away any promise they offered
for what seemed forever.

so dear, oh dear let's pretend
let's pretend we weren't clumsy 
enough to fall in love.
