Pretend

This song is by Lights and appears on the album The Listening (2009).

Once in a while I act like a child, to feel like a kid again.
It gets like a prison in the body I'm living in.
'Cause everyone's watching and quick to start talking,
I'm losing my innocence.
Wish I were a little girl without the weight of the world.

It would be nice to start over again,
Before we were men.
I'd give, I'd bend, let's play pretend.

Remember the times we had soda for wine,
And we got by on gratitude.
The worst they could do to you was check your attitude.
Yeah, when fights were for fun, we had water in guns,
And a place we could call our own.
How we lost hold of home, I guess I'll never know.

It would be nice to start over again,
Before we were men.
I'd give, I'd bend, let's play pretend.

And when it's the end,
Our lives will make sense.
We'll love, we'll bend, let's play pretend.

It's not going to be long, before we're all gone,
With nothing to show for them.
Stop taking lives, come on, let's all grow up again.

It would be nice to start over again,
Before we were men
I'd give, I'd bend, let's play pretend.

And when it's the end,
Our lives will make sense.
We'll love, we'll bend, let's play pretend.
