SHALL I PRETEND

Verse One
Shall I pretend that I am strong. Shall I pretend I can't be hurt?
Shall I pretend to know no wrong - or shall I be me?
Shall I pretend that I know you- Shall I pretend to understand?
Shall I pretend to know the answers or shall I be me?

Chorus:
Shall I pretend that I know love
Shall I pretend I feel like I belong
Shall I pretend that I am free - or shall I be me?

Verse Two
Shall I pretend I believe in Jesus - Shall I pretend that I don’t
Shall I pretend that I'm not scared - or shall I be me?

Guitar Solo

Verse Three
Shall I pretend that I'm not here - Shall I pretend that I'm so deep
Shall I pretend that I don’t care or shall I be me?
Or shall I be me (shall I pretend?) Or shall I be me
Or shall I be me, or shall I be me, or shall I pretend?

Chorus:
Shall I pretend that I know love -
Shall I pretend I feel like I belong
Shall I pretend that I am free - or shall I be me?

Shall I pretend? Or shall I be me?
Shall I pretend? Or shall I be me? Or shall I be me? Or shall I be me?
Or shall I pretend?
Or shall I be me?
