Pretending
She was pretending
Like she didn't know the rules
Or the games

She was pretending
Like she didn't like the wetness down her cheeks
Or the soft touch and glare

She was pretending
Like she didn't want the grapevine sessions
Or the dripped-dry laundry lines

She was pretending
That she didn't know the lies
Or want to know about the words

She was pretending
That she didn't hear the songs I sang
Or see the paintings I painted

She was pretending
Not to smell the fresh air
Or see the sun glare every day

She was pretending
That she was leaving me
Or that she hated me

She was pretending
To ignore me
Or that phones rang

She was pretending
That her laughter was for me
Or that reality is here

She was pretending
To enjoy the silence
Or want the noise

She was pretending
Not to play the answering machine
Or admit to the wants

She was pretending
And thats all I have to say
