Play Pretend

Reading by the light from your cigarette glow
Captured a bee in a jar to die slow
Let's go for a walk to buy smoke in a box
Maybe we'll have to talk maybe not
Wasn't that your way to tell me your secret desires

Is it wrong for you to choose or have someone choose for you
Let's talk about war let's talk about making decisions
It's getting dark now and I cannot walk
or even stand though I still can talk
It really amazes me how we continue

Let's say we stay the night
And we can play pretend
Fall out of sight

Now is the time when I realize there's nothing to stay for
Now we can quest as we travel for what we believe in
Just one light guides us takes us away
That's where we'll go and that's where we'll stay
It's just your opinion when you say it's over


from Let's Go Swimming, released October 19, 2009
