Don't Pretend

  • Don't pretend, don't pretend (pretend pretend) don't pretend that you will ever love again.
    (don't pretend that you will ever love again)

    Little miss teary eyes, you have no reason to lie to me
    Put your coat down, why you waving goodbye to me ?
    I've been reassessing the situation sitting silently
    And finally realizing how you can't look eye to eye with me
    And I knew about him the whole time, the hotels, phone calls shit the whole nine
    But I guess that's what friends are for, and I've come to a conclusion that you're nothing but a very selfish person

    Open up my chest and you'll see a hole cavity where my heart use to be
    Makings amends is out of the question, when you look into his pupils and I'm the reflection. ha ha

    Don't pretend, (oh no) never going to give you up (oh no)
    Never going to let you down, turn around, don't pretend that he is just a friend
    Don't pretend, never going to give you up
    Never going to let you down, turn around, don't pretend that you will ever love again

    OK let me calm down, here have a seat baby, maybe we can talk now
    Guess I only have one question for you, was I just another step in a progression for you?
    And if so, why ain't you tell me that? I wouldn't of sprung forward, I'd of fell back
    But I guess that's what friends are for, the only word that comes to mind is that you're nothing but a little brat

    Open up my chest and you'll see a hole cavity where my heart use to be
    Makings amends is out of the question, when you look into his pupils and I'm the reflection. ha ha

    Don't pretend, (oh no) never going to give you up (oh no)
    Never going to let you down, turn around, don't pretend that he is just a friend
    Don't pretend, never going to give you up
    Never going to let you down, turn around, don't pretend that you will ever love again,
    Don't pretend that you will ever love again, don't pretend that you will ever love again

    We know it's nothing but the best right?
    But at night I pray to God he won't rest right
    You probably think I'm still bitter, you guessed right
    How in the hell do we find ourselves in this mess right?

    I will bid farewell boobie, seven times and I'ma keep it moving Writer/s: TRAVIS MCCOY, COLIN MUNROE, CHAD BEATS
