Let's Pretend

lyrics

Let’s pretend that we are pixie queens in a hidden blue-green land
There is no fear: we dance and sing until the sun lies down to mark the end of the day
Dinner time, and then for sleep

Let’s pretend our beds are ships set out on fearful rolling seas
But we’ll be safe, ‘cause nothing can destroy our sister fleet
And we will said the seas of dreams and wake again to a brand-new morning

Whatever happened?
Whatever happened?

This was the world we made
This was our great escape
This was the promise said to get us through
Let’s make our eyes un-see
How yellowed with age it’s been
Come on, let’s make believe it’s all still true
‘Cause I still need you

Let’s pretend we can be anything imagination schemes
And words like worry, doubt, and pain are banned from pulling at the seams
And when the sadness comes, it gets wiped away with a kiss on the cheek

Whatever happened?
Whatever happened?

This was the world we made
This was our great escape
This was the promise said to get us through
Let’s make our eyes un-see
How yellowed with age it’s been
Come on, let’s make believe it’s all still true
‘Cause I still need you

I need you more than ever
These seas are darker than we ever could have known
Depth and distance grow
You’re still the only one who knows

Let’s pretend our beds are ships set out on fearful rolling seas
But we’ll be safe, ‘cause nothing can destroy our sister fleet
And we will said the seas of dreams and wake again to a brand-new morning
