Pretend - Lyrics

Pin It Now!

Last played: 2007/10/27 Boston, MA
Debut: 2005/07/16 Grand Falls, NL
Album: World Container (2006)
Notes: Sad song, but here's something that makes me smile... My wife is from California and needless to say she hadn't heard of The Hip before we met. Now that she has, not really a fan. Anyway, she goes back to Cali for a family visit and learns how to play this song by ear on the piano after I snuck it on to her ipod... Always makes me smile that does. Two other songs along with Pretend share a variation of the lyric "Gripping the city, hitting the town"... The Kids Don't Get It & Family Band...


If I ask you a question
are you going to lie to me?
Is that your question?
Because that one is easy

It's gripping the city
and hitting the town
and no one on earth is
doing this now

If you can pretend
and I can pretend
pretending won't end
and then and well then...

If you take the chances
I'll take the bows
saying ‘no one on earth is
doing this now'

But if I ask you a question
are you gonna lie to me?
Is that your question?
Because that one is easy

If you don't pretend
and I don't pretend
pretending might end
but pretend can pretend to end

You can't pretend
Yes I can. Yes I can. Yes I can.
You can't pretend
Yes I can. Yes I can. Yes I can.

You can't pretend
Yes I can. Yes I can. Yes I can.

You can't pretend
Yes I can. Yes I can. Yes I can.
