I PRETEND

Yeah.. I pretend that I'm your man
And your hand's in mine forever
So clear.. love's eyes always see
Feelings that will extinguish never
So lets imagine.. you and me

I read your poems, taste fantasy
Enough to keep this dream alive
Not listening to lies.. of reality
I can survive, thinking we're real
Girl, you in my arms.. it's destiny 

Cause I can't go on
And there's no tomorrow 
If I'm all alone
Drowning in this sorrow
Breathe into my lungs 
Tell me that it's true
Say, I'm not crazy
There's a me and you

Just love me now to eternity 
We could be so good together
My feelings can't be tethered
This love inside must be set free
Oh can't you see.. I wanna be
We need to be...

Cause I can't go on
And there's no tomorrow 
If I'm all alone
Drowning in this sorrow
Breathe into my lungs 
Tell me that it's true
Say, I'm not crazy
There's a me and you

Girl, I don't want to pretend
But I can't let us end
So tell me that it's true
Say, I'm not crazy...
There's a me and you

There's a me and you..
Got to be... a me and you!

~Lyric Man

Note: I wanted to write about feelings so strong, though they be fantasy, there is always the possibility that these feelings can reach over into reality. It's happened to me, so the writer is a believer in the magic of what could be.  I've seen dreams come true.. but could they in a place called, Soup???

Love this Dave, especially the chorus, I guess that's where the expression Dream it into life comes from. Also they say talk it into reality, so with a vision and plenty of advertising mostly anything can come true...we make our own future. Well done!

Pretend is the result of Feelings. One has to pretend and without that where is the life. Your Lyric is Manly and lovely.

Love and dreams coming true, hand in hand. It sounds lovely, and so does your lyric. Always with passion, a passionate soul. May that never change.

No Man, you're not crazy. Go out into the night and look up into the vision of the reality that was once a mere dream of the celestial soup: it...us...we...I&I...and there's...all. A great write. Really enjoyed it. Peace and Love, Millard Lowe.

Falling in love over and over again is a hazardous thing. I put a stop to it years and years ago. No regrets. Many thanks for stopping by to read so many of poems, LM. Best to you. / M

Your golden pen gifts us so much, with the lyrical verses it births.. This sends me back to the days of my youth and the depths of the feelings I had each time I fell in love....Takes great heart and great poetry to accomplish that my very talented friend! A fav..

Soup is whatever you make it to be L.M. (while reality, well that's sitting behind a computer ) fantasy? its what we create when we put word to emotion and desire. its easy to blur the lines when we hunger for human contact. Thanks for the read, and the foot note

Well I've heard it said that fantasies can become reality, and with lovely words like these, who knows? Great lyrics, have they been set to music yet? ...Maria :)

A world of magic, beauty! A world of fulfillment! A realm that sets you free to dream, though words chained sometimes! I think if words are always set free, we are unveiled and the beauty of mystery is dissolved! You are blessed with the voice of poetry, a singer of your own lyrics! A great joy to read your beauty! A FAV. Stay safe and blessed always.

Maybe she will succeed in the assignment and convince you of the genuineness of the relationship or she will fall flat and reveal all is fantasy. Time will tell. Kudos for a wonderful job here my LM...love and hugs.
