Gilbert O'Sullivan – Why Pretend lyrics

Oh everyone knows
You're all alone
So why pretend
And everyone knows
You're on your own
Why not let it end
Your baby's gone
And you're all alone
So why pretend.
Every time
You're not at home
You say that she's with you
Isn't it time
You made it known
That she isn't with you
She's far away
And there she will stay
Oh why pretend

You didn't want her
When her heart grew fonder
Oh, of you by her side
You didn't love her
So she found another
Oh, why pretend
It's got to end.

'Cos everyone knows
You're all alone
So why pretend
You didn't want her
When her heart grew fonder
Oh, of you by her side
You didn't love her
So she found another
Oh, why pretend
It's got to end

Oh everyone knows
You're all alone
So why pretend
And everyone knows
That you're on your own
Why not let it end
Your baby's gone
And you're all alone
So why pretend.
