"Pretend" as written by and O'hara....
I know that the flame has burned out,
The love has left your eyes.
All that remains for me are the memories,
And these tears I cry.
But baby, can you understand,
How hard it is for me to face the end?
Please, just for tonight, pretend.

I'm movin' down the highway,
Come morning light.
I won't be turning back, you'll be free at last,
I've given up my fight.
But baby, there's a whole lot of darkness standin',
Between now and then.
Please, just for tonight, pretend,

Please, pretend:
One last tender kiss,
Please don't leave me,
Hangin' on the jagged edge like this.

Suffer me one more illusion,
Indulge this obsessive need.
I'm a prideful man,
Doin' the best I can,
With what's left of me.
I ain't looking for your pity, baby,
Just strength to live again.
Please, just for tonight, pretend.

Please, pretend:
One last tender kiss,
Please don't leave me,
Hangin' on the jagged edge like this.

Suffer me one more illusion,
Indulge this obsessive need.
I'm a prideful man,
Doin' the best I can,
With what's left of me.
I ain't looking for your pity, baby,
Just strength to live again.
Please, just for tonight, pretend,
Please, just for tonight, pretend,
Please, just for tonight, pretend.

Pretend,
Pretend,
Pretend.
