Let Me Pretend

Red and white, white and red
Laid in triangles on my bed
Don’t leave, don’t you leave just yet
I can pretend, I can pretend

You should be gone, but you’re still here
This is the hardest nightmare
You’re a terror adorned in white
Trying to resist you with all my might
I can pretend, I can pretend

I’m the problem, I’m the dream
That wasn’t meant to be
Descendant of the Moon
I think I’ve come here too soon
I can pretend, I can pretend

Forgetting the dagger
Putting aside my anger
Trying to drown in the water
The waters of my mind
Like everyone else, you’re leaving me behind
I can pretend, I can pretend

It’s no use
I have no real excuse
This behaviour is childish
Speaking in a strange language
I can pretend, I can pretend

Sitting near my piano
Imagining I can sing with my low soprano
I miss your tenor
I miss your harsh laughter
I can pretend, I can pretend

Goodbye you, didn’t have the chance to say it
Don’t think I never meant it
Be healed, be free
Please smile for someone else and be happy
Don’t get hurt because of me
I can pretend, I can pretend

I can pretend you loved me instead.
