I'll Pretend - Lyrics

I'll pretend that you're gone, on vacation
And you'll be back in a week or maybe two
And when the phone rings I'll pretend it's you calling
To tell me you miss me and you're coming home soon

I'll pretend I don't hear when silence tells me
That I'll have to get by on my own
I'll pretend I don't hear when loneliness speaks so clear
And try to tell me you're not coming home
(Not coming home)

Right now my life
Ain't nothing but a dream
How long can I fool myself?
Into believing you're coming back to me

I can see you laying in his bed
Like I caught the two of you in fact
Everybody told me it was coming
But I chose to be blind

I'll pretend your clothes are hanging in the closet
And I'll pretend your perfume fills the air
And as I sit in our favourite restaurant
I'll pretend that you're meeting me there

I'll pretend when I visit our old friends
That you're sitting down by my side
And when our old friends ask how am I doing?
I'll pretend I'm not losing my mind

Although they know I'm lying
They know I'm lying
I can't live like this
I forgive you
Please come back
I can't live like this
I love you
And I forgive you
And I want you
