lyrics

Let’s pretend
That the world’s not coming to an end
Oh Let’s Pretend

And let’s bend
All the rules but they’ll never break
They just bend back again

Salt water!
From my sink
Salt water
All I ever think about is water

So let’s spend
all that money and all that time
As if it would never end

And darling when
the waves come we’ll be fine
Whoa let’s pretend

Salt water!
From my sink
Salt water
All I ever think about is water

And I want what I want
False refuge is the one you choose
What I want
White noise is slowly killing you
Well I may be under the influence
Of social conditioning
What I want what I want

Don't you ever tell me
What to feel and what not to feel
Don't you ever tell me
What is real and what isn't real
Wouldn’t it be nicer, if someone could decipher
What I want, what I want

Let’s pretend
That the world’s not coming to an end
Oh Let’s Pretend

and Let’s send
all those letters to all our friends
and say goodbye again

Salt water!
From my sink
Salt water
All I ever think about is water

you know that
I want what I want
False refuge is the one you seem to choose
What I want
a seldom-broken trance of blues
Well I may be under the influence
Of social conditioning
What I want what I want
