​Love Pretenders

This song is by The Madden Brothers and appears on the album Greetings From California (2014).

Maybe we should just be love pretenders
Cause baby we don't need these scars
Never gonna let my heart surrender
I'm afraid to fall too hard

I've dropped my soul down the darkest hole
And I can't find my way out
But I retrace the steps I take
And I try to figure out

Why do I do this to myself?
Why do I let my guard down?
Why do I just replay the past?
Why do I let you come around?

We've both been here before
Yeah, we've both been here

Maybe we should just be love pretenders
Baby, we don't need these scars
Never gonna let my heart surrender
I'm afraid to fall too hard
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders

I'm optimistic, that if we risk it
We could work it out
But it's a gamble, when hearts get tangled
We could come unwound

Why do we do this to ourselves
When we need each other?
Why don't we try to make this last?
Why don't we try to stick around?

We've both been here before,
Yeah, we've both been here

Maybe we should just be love pretenders
Baby, we don't need these scars
Never gonna let my heart surrender
I'm afraid to fall too hard
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders

Some say don't waste your days playing it so safe
Love takes a heart brave enough to play

Maybe we should just be love pretenders
Baby, we don't need these scars
Never gonna let my heart surrender
I'm afraid to fall too hard
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa
Love pretenders

Some say don't waste your days playing it so safe
Love takes a heart brave enough to break
