  1. Pretend

From the recording Breathe

Lyrics

When you’ve seen so many winters and walked so many miles,
When you’ve lost so many friends and you’ve forgotten how to smile,
And you’ve had to say goodbye one too many times.
The silence is loud and there’s nothing to say.
 
After all, life’s only pretend.
You’re thinking too much now and then.
Watch all of the children at play,
while they dance all around, hear them say––
 
Let’s build a castle, I’ll be the queen
We’ll have silver and gold. We’ll make believe
You be the king and we’ll live happily
 
Are you watching out your window as life passes by?
While the world is turning faster, you’re frozen in time.
Just close your eyes and find a place to hide.
Imagine the place, it’s all in your mind.
 
After all, life’s only pretend.
You’re thinking too much now and then.
Watch all of the children at play,
while they dance all around, hear them say––
 
Let’s build a castle, I’ll be the queen
We’ll have silver and gold.
We’ll make believe.
You be the king and we’ll live happily…
