  • Yeah, it's almost like
    Can't nobody do it quite, like
    I do it right
    Give it to you how you live

    Can we pretend
    That everything is like yesterday
    What if I just wanna feel you touching me?
    Ain't nobody perfect
    So if you take a while to make it worth it
    I wanna pretend
    Let's pretend that we 'bout to break up
    To catch the feelings that I when we make up
    Legs up, suicide, north side
    We never count points when we courtside

    Let's pretend I ain't your friend
    So we can get it on again
    Let's pretend we never met
    A good excuse to play forget
    Let's pretend you never lied
    So I can give it up all night
    Swallow my pride, and learn to forgive
    When I'm looking for love I pretend

    It's you
    A love that never ends
    I pretend it's you
    That I'm in love with

    If we pretend that I'm happy when I'm really not
    Pretend that I give you everything I've got
    Pretend that I'm there when I ain't there
    Pretend that I care when I don't care
    Once upon a time, I did
    Now I admit that I was fucking with a kid
    Now I pretend that everything's straight
    When everything ex covered up like pain

    Let's pretend it's my first time
    So you can really blow my mind
    Let's pretend we never met
    A good excuse to play forget
    Let's pretend you never lied
    So I can give it up all night
    Swallow my pride, and learn to forgive
    When I'm looking for love I pretend

    It's you
    A love that never ends
    I pretend it's you
    That I'm in love with

    To never fool around with you was my best deed
    Stand up guy, heart up on my left sleeve
    When I could find another lover by the next week
    Besties turn to ex-ies from a pep tease
    Fuck what these other niggas on, I came to flaunt
    What's that A$AP, little Saint Laurent?
    Probably what you're thinking 'bout, the commas in my bank account
    Pretty bitches bring em out, jiggy nigga in the house (house)
    When I caught her dancing by the couch (oww)
    With her little booty hanging out (her blouse)
    Sticking something in her stomach
    Got her screaming out "I'm coming", fronting like you really want it
    Still my nigga though

    You
    A love that never ends
    I pretend it's you
    That I'm in love with
