Can We Pretend (feat. Cash Cash)

Written by Pink, Ryan Tedder, Jean-Paul Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf, Samuel Frisch)


I remember conversations
We were dancing up on tables
Taking pictures when we had nowhere to post
You were laughin’, I was cryin’
We were dancin’, we were dyin’
Sometimes I don’t know how we walked away

If I’m honest what I liked
Were the things we didn’t know
Every morning every night
I’ll be beating down your door
Just to tell you what I’m thinkin’ but you already know
Screw this, I don’t want to let it go

CHORUS
So can we pretend
That I’m twenty-two today
Dancin’ on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend
That we all end up okay
I just want to forget with you, oh yeah

Can we pretend
That we both like the president
Can we pretend
That I really like your shoes, hell yeah
Can we pretend
‘Cause honestly reality it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh let’s make believe
Can we
Can we pretend
Can we pretend

I remember what we wanted
What we’d never take for granted
How our daddy issues took us to L.A.
If I’m honest what I miss
Is not knowing what to say
And the feeling of your lips
And it haunts me everyday
When you’d tell me what you’re thinking but I’d already know
Screw this, I don’t want to let it go, oh yeah

CHORUS
So can we pretend
That I’m twenty-two today
Dancin’ on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend
That we all end up okay
I just want to forget with you, oh yeah

Can we pretend
We both like the way it is, hell yeah
Can we pretend
That we like this fake-ass dudes, oh yeah
Can we pretend
‘Cause honestly reality it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh let’s make believe
Can we
Can we pretend
Can we pretend

If I’m honest what I liked
Were the things we didn’t know
Every morning every night
I’ll be beating down your door
Just to tell you what I’m thinkin’ but you’d already know
Screw this I don’t want to let it go

CHORUS
So can we pretend
That we both like the president
Can we pretend
That you like my fake-ass shoes, oh yeah
Can we pretend
‘Cause honestly reality it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh let’s make believe
Can we
Can we pretend
Can we pretend
Can we pretend
Can we
Let’s make believe
Can we
Can we
Can we pretend
‘Cause honestly reality it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh let’s make believe
Can we
Can we pretend
Honestly
