  • I can't pretend
    I'm sorry we're apart
    I can't pretend
    I just can't fool my heart
    Though I make mine
    My friends all seem to realize
    Their smiles, that look in my eye
    I can't pretend
    I simply can't be gayer
    For in the end
    My tears give me away
    Without you dear
    I live a lie
    I can't defend
    I love you
    And I can't pretend
