"Pretend" as written by Charlie Lawrence Thomson, Joseph Alexander Mackay, Russell Peter Parlett, Colin Patrick O'reilly, Benjamin Lloyd Morris and James Anthony Robson....
Sometimes I wish that we could all forget
Your figure fades into a silhouette
But I hear you breathing
I'm done believing

We're painting portraits but the canvas is blank
If this life is a gift then who do we pay?
You're desperate for the answer
It eats at you like cancer

Tonight won't ever end; can we pretend, pretend, pretend?
We'll paint the walls instead and I'll pretend, pretend, pretend again

Your head is filled with unproven thoughts
Twisting theories into bigger knots
And I feel you dreaming
You're done believing

Tried to avoid this but I'm weak to the bone
My inner compass points me to the unknown
But I still keep running faster
Yea, someday I'll find the answer

Tonight won't ever end; can we pretend, pretend, pretend?
We'll paint the walls instead and I'll pretend, pretend, pretend again
Ooh, pretend, pretend, pretend
We'll paint the walls instead, and I'll pretend, pretend, pretend again

I wanted to know you
Though I still don't know myself
I've got so much to show you
Won't you show me the way? (yea)

Tonight won't ever end; can we pretend, pretend, pretend?
I don't want this to end so I'll pretend, pretend, pretend again
Ooh, pretend, pretend, pretend
Tonight won't ever end; can we pretend, pretend, pretend instead?

Lights turned low
Lights turned low 'cause I don't wanna see this go
So can I just pretend, pretend, pretend instead?
