pretend (reprise) lyrics – lights

“pretend (reprise)”

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 everyones 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 grat*tude
the worst they could do to you was check your att*tude
yeha 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’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
