Pretending

[Verse 1:]
At first glance
I thought I'd find you in the palm of my hands
So I asked my friends
They told me, "Kid, you do not stand a chance"
Well I've been talking, I've been wondering, I've been thinking
If not me, then who?
So I start walking and building up the courage to
Say directly to you
 
[Pre-Chorus 1:]
I think I'm addicted to something that's different
I've never felt this way about anybody before
Face down on the floor
 
And, I'm acting like it's not surprising
The thing that you do though are so hypnotising
So hard to control it whenever I'm feeling it begging for more
 
[Chorus:]
Can we please stop pretending
We're not both feeling this
Baby, you're killing it
And I don't know how much more I can take
I'm used to living reckless
Accustomed to the excess
Attention given to me
By the girl in the black dress
I'm granted access
Oh, whenever I ask it
But I'm lovin' your eyes and I'm diggin' your smile
I think maybe we should go sit down for a while
And bring this whole game to a satisfied ending
If we'd both stop pretending
 
[Verse 2:]
So I start to feel the time pass me by
Every opportunity gone to waste
And there's a hundred other girls in this place
But, there's something about you, darlin'
I can't look away
I've been hooked since I saw your face
 
[Pre-Chorus 2:]
And you're magical, something spectacular
Baby, for you need a whole new vernacular
I can't describe how I'm feeling inside
 
But I'm nervous and that doesn't usually happen
And you're so distracting
The way that you're snapping
I'm thinking, maybe you would like to go for a ride
 
[Chorus:]
Can we please stop pretending
We're not both feeling this
Baby, you're killing it
And I don't know how much more I can take
I'm used to living reckless
Accustomed to the excess
Attention given to me
By the girl in the black dress
Always granted access
Oh, whenever I ask it
But I'm lovin' your eyes and I'm diggin' your smile
I think maybe we should go sit down for a while
And bring this whole game to a satisfied ending
If we'd both stop pretending
 
Can we please stop pretending?
 
[Bridge:]
At first glance
I knew I'd find you in the palm of my hands
 
[Chorus:]
Can we please stop pretending
We're not both feeling this
Baby, you're killing it
And I don't know how much more I can take
I'm used to living reckless
Accustomed to the excess
Attention given to me
By the girl in the black dress
I'm granted access
Oh, whenever I ask it
But I'm lovin' your eyes and I'm diggin' your smile
I think maybe we should go sit down for a while
And bring this whole game to a satisfied ending
If we'd both stop pretending
 
Can we please stop pretending?
 
Thanks!
