Pretending Won't Get Us Anywhere

I don’t want to see you go 
But, there is no other choice…
Dancing in the fire of woe,
Trying to find that inner voice…

If you’re looking for some trouble,
Get lost in the midst of my rubble 
You left without second glance
You had your chance with me…
Yeah, you had your chance	

Please don’t make me wait for You
To shine a little light in my direction
Don’t make me feel guilty and blue
Help me…blow away my infection…

Conquer me with Your gracious hope…
And, if you can, can you help me cope – 
Cope with these feelings that kill me softly
I’m addicted to this sorrow that hurts me 
That hurts me to the point when I can’t feel anymore
I’m becoming numb…and I don’t know what I’m living for
Wishing hopelessly that I can live my fantasy for a long time as I see fit
Don’t make me wait forever in this terrain – emptiness and tears is what’s left of it

For a while longer, I’d like to see you smile 
I’d run the extra mile just to visit your isle 
Faking happiness is the last thing that you should do in front of me	
Pretend to forgive and forget and move on from the past of vanity

Just pretend…
That this is not the end…
Just pretend…
These scars will mend…
I don’t mind being here
While you hold me dear
But, don’t lie to me in my face…
Making me feel like a disgrace
Believe it or not, we can get along again
As long as we get out of this lion’s den
Under pressure…
Beyond measure…
We’re just pretending…never-ending…
Maybe we aren’t in danger…I can’t believe what I’m seeing
We’re just pretending…never-ending…
Maybe we’re full of anger…let’s separate for the time being
