Learning To Pretend

This song is by Abraham Cloud and appears on the album The Children Of The Milkman (2002).

When you wake up in the morning,
Can of beer in your hand,
And your mouth feels like a pillow,
And your head is hurting bad,

When the wind comes crawling through your window,
Calling you to follow it again,
You might feel that your life is not your own
It's always waiting up around the bend,

Learning to pretend

As you drive down crowded freeways,
Bright-White-Fear fills your eyes,
And you think you feel so desperate,
But we all feel that way most the time.

Don't be scared of fantastic new illusions
They may turn out to be your only friends,
Find a groove and let it
Take you down the highway,
You might never find
That kind of groove again,

Learning to pretend

And the magic of the moment just lasts an instant
When you see it gotta grab it, Won't be hangin' 'round,
Won't be hangin' round too long.

Learning to pretend
Learning all your life then
You?re learning once again
Learning to pretend

When the view you used to be so used to
Gets flattened by some fat and angry men,
And you can't remember why you came here
But you're leaving once again, you're
Learning to pretend
