"Stop Pretending" as written by Michael Cook Busse, Barry Louis Collins, Benjamin Melan Collins, Brandon Michael Lee and Ryan Michael Breen....
If for just one night
We could stop pretending
That we're never ending
'Cause soon I'll have to go

My biggest fear in life is that the universe works
I guess to be blessed we have to be cursed first
Well obviously waiting on honesty hurts worse
Than arguing over how much the dirt's worth
If that type of magic when creative spurts burst
Can turn to a flat line from hospitalized bird chirps
Would you line up with me to be the first cursed
To prove to this nervous earth the universe works

For just one night
Could we just stop pretending
That we're never ending
'Cause soon I'll have to go
These days are coming
To an end my friend
So can we just stop pretending
I'm here to stay

All right all right the universe works had enough with the crisis
I'm sure that all our heads have been stuck in vice grips
When advice gets repetitive that's because it is
So we should stop pretending we haven't heard it before this
So who ever you share life with whether it be your lover parent
Grandparent sister or brother
Let them know to make sure they knew
That they were appreciated for taking on the challenge of you

Try
Get to the other side
Rise
Watch your halo grow in size
I
Hope to god that I
Will never be given another personality that I'll have to resign

'Cause you didn't cherish all those times we had
You find yourself feeling sad
'Cause I've gone away

    General Commenti remember seeing them play this song on fuse's imx or w/e its called. this made me buy the cd which kicks ass this song is so catchy their single time and time again makes u seem like theres some sort of crappy rap in this band and if ur expecting that dont get the cd its more pop/rock

    i think this song is about looking at reality and the fact that some relationship sucks and is gunna fall apart but the guy doesnt want that to happen

    General CommentOnly one comment? Very catchy song, but very good. So what if they put in elements of rap and pop in their music? They pull it off, and they pull it off well. Corny-ish lyrics as always, but mainly true. Pretty straight-forward lyrics.

    General CommentThey have an interesting sound which is cool. This is way more rock than their old albums, if you've heard they're old stuff you'd know this a lot more 'rock' than the old stuff. Great song, and great album. I suggest you go and buy the album if you havent done so aleady.
