"Don't Pretend" as written by Chad Burnette and Travie Mccoy....
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

    General Commentthe best song on the album, its about his break up with Katy Perry.

    And I knew about him the whole time,
    The hotels,
    Phone calls,
    (Pshh!) The whole nine.

    Is about how he kinda new about her and Russel Brand, in an interview he said that once they got engaged so quick things started to make sense

    General CommentThis is such an honest song. I love Travie & I have for a very long time. Katy doesn't know what she's let go, cause that's one broken heart right there.

    General CommentIn an interview Travie said his allergies were messin up pretty bad when he recorded the song, but he decided to use it... He wanted you to be able to feel the pain... Brilliant

    General CommentAlso, I'm pretty sure it's "when you look into his pupils and I'm the reflection" not "when you look into his pupils and not the reflection."

    Lyric CorrectionBut I guess that's what friends are for,
    The only word that comes to mind is that you're nothing but a little...brat.

    I think he should have clearly just called her a whore instead of hesitating and using brat lol.

    Love this song, favorite from the album, so down to earth, so heartfelt.
