While I held you with our undry eyes
Happy years pass by
It's OK to cry

After all
In the end
Just pretend

Well it's sticks and stones
and broken homes
that taught us how to smile

After all
In the end
Just pretend

There's a name that plays in my head
like a song
all day long
she's with me every day

After all
In the end
Just pretend

Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

If the sun can't shine
you'll be just fine
look into your mind
where you're free

After all
In the end
Just pretend

Cause we heard each other
once before
lets not do that again

After all
In the end
Just pretend

And a voice so familiar
wakes me up in the middle
if she thinks I'm having a bad dream

After all
In the end
Just pretend

Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

After all
It's the end
