​Just Pretend

This song is by The Bens and appears on the EP The Bens (2003) and on the expanded edition of the album The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective (2011) by ​Ben Folds.

Ben Kweller:
Well I held you with our undry eyes
Happy years pass by
It's ok to cry

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

Ben Lee:
Well it's sticks and stones and broken homes
That taught us how to smile

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

Ben Folds:
There's a name that plays in my head
Like a song
All day long she's with me every day

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

The Bens:
Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

Ben Kweller:
If the sun can shine
You'll be just fine
Look into your mind
Where you're free

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

Ben Lee:
'Cause we hurt each other once before
Lets not do that again

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

Ben Folds:
And a voice so fimilar
Wakes me up in the middle
She thinks I'm having a bad dream

The Bens:
After all
In the end
Just pretend

The Bens:
Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

Ben Kweller:
After all... it's the end...
