Love is a flame that can't be tamed
And though we are it's willing prey, my darling
We are not the ones to blame

The more we have the more we want
And the more it hurts our hearts, my baby
It always ends up in tears

So keep on pretending
Our heaven is worth the waiting
Keep on pretending, it's alright
So keep on pretending
It will be the end of our craving
Keep on pretending, it's alright

Trust is a word all lovers know
The glorious art of staining souls, my darling
It always ends up in tears

So keep on pretending
Our heaven is worth the waiting
Keep on pretending, it's alright
So keep on pretending
It will be the end of our craving
Keep on pretending, it's alright
Oh, come on

So keep on pretending
Our heaven is worth the waiting
Keep on pretending, it's alright
So keep on pretending
It won't be the end of our craving
Keep on pretending, it's alright

So keep on pretending, yeah
It will be the end of our craving

Pretending, yeah, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
When it's not alright, yeah, when it's not alright, yeah
It's not alright, yeah
Just keep on pretending just like I do, honey yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah yeah. oh yeah yeah
Oh no, 'cus we're just faking yeah
When you carry the burden on your shoulders
Just the way I do, myself
Oh, my caring
Just say, all the things I mean and all the things I really wanna say
Why do you keep your heart so close now, darling?
Oh yeah, 'cos I love your smiles more than your tears
Yeah, more than your tears yeah-yeah
Oh yeah baby, baby, baby!
Yeah, just believe me
Just believe me
Oh, no
Pretending, why do we keep on fooling ourselves now?
Yeah, 'cos we know the truth
Yeah, 'cos we know the truth, now darling

Keep on pretending, it will be the end of our craving
Pretending, that it's alright
When it's not alright
