We Can Pretend – Written Thursday 18th May 2000 (Aged 25)

We Can Pretend

we can pretend
but you still want me near
we can move in mirages
sail beautiful canal barges
we can tip-toe through the light
but you still want me near
we can pretend
about being friends
and the days not so clear
but i am here
and i am thinking of you
i am a slave to your whims
and part of your dreams
if only because of the freedom
i hope you will bring
we can pretend
but you still want me near
and i still think of you
but your touch is a dream away
we can pretend
but we will always have to face facts
those do not end
