Pretending Lyrics

[Intro: Fletcher]
One, two, three, four

[Verse 1: Fletcher]
We're talking small, like, "How you been?"
Like, "How's your mom and all your friends?"
We're catching up about all the bullsh!t trending
You crack a joke 'bout kissing me
'Bout going there, 'bout loving me
I laugh it off as if that sh!t wouldn't wreck me

[Chorus: Fletcher]
As if I'm not what you're waiting for
Like I'm not in your ending
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on pretending
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Yeah, for now)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(We'll both keep on pretending)

[Verse 2: Fletcher]
You drop me off, your windows down
I'm looking in, you're looking out
I say goodnight as if my heart isn't wrenching
I'll say it now (I'll say it now)
"You're everything" (You're everything)
"Turn back around, and never leave"
I typе it out as if that's the text I'm sending

[Chorus: Fletcher]
As if I'm not what you'rе waiting for
Like I'm not in your ending
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on pretending
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Yeah, for now)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(We'll both keep on pretending)

[Post-Chorus: Fletcher]
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretending)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretending)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretend, yeah, for now)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(We'll both keep on pretending)

[Bridge: Fletcher]
As if I'm not what you're waiting for
Like I'm not in your ending
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on
Yeah, for now, we'll both keep on pretending

[Chorus: Fletcher]
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Yeah, for now)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(We'll both keep on pretending, now)

[Outro: Fletcher]
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretending, pretending)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretend, pretending)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(Keep on pretending, yeah, for now)
Ah, ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
(We'll both keep on pretending)
