Lyrics

If I Could Pretend

Written By: Emily Ellis and Ryan Clayton


IF I COULD PRETEND

VERSE 1
Concentrating in my head to
Stay between the lines i know if i keep a steady pace that
Ill get home just fine
Eyelids weighed down with all my thoughts
Loosing sight out of mind and I guess its the price that you pay when your loosing control

CHORUS
If I could pretend that all of this was just a dream and nothing's as it seems
If I could erase all the pain I put you through I swear to God I would

VERSE 2
Rushing to the scene in darkness
To assess the state that we're in as the smell lingers in there
proof of where I've been
Body lays down on the pavement
Hearts still beating but holding on to every breathes that she saves
I hear his voice screaming

PRE-CHORUS
I've taken all she's known the decision was my own
Im breaking down into tears now
My heart is racing my hand wont stop shaking (Im shaking)

CHORUS
If I could pretend that all of this was just a dream and nothing's as it seems
If I could erase all the pain I put you through I swear to God I would

BRIDGE
Right now
The stage is set for here I made my bed
And now
I lie here wasting counting days we've lost
I know that you're not sleeping
and as this image haunts me
I just wanna wake
This nightmare consumes me

CHORUS

If I could pretend that all of this was just a dream and nothing's as it seems
If I could erase all the pain I put you through I swear to God I would
If I could pretend that all of this was just a dream and nothing's as it seems
If I could erase all the pain I put you through I swear to God I would
