​Let's Pretend

This song is by The Saints and appears on the album The Monkey Puzzle (1981).

We all take a drink from the cup
Then she politely knocks it over
I said I think that I've had enough
And she says no no this is not over
Because there is no innocence or beauty in
What I have seen in your face
So let's pretend
I got up to take a walk across the floor
But my feet they would not hold me
She said you should never have come into this bar
And I say no I should never have come in
But I had been sold down the river to
Somebody sold me
It could have been you
So every day time slips away
There is nothing to contain it
These eyes of mine don't see the sense
Of trying to control it
Because every time you stand up
You're bound to fall
And sometimes we just pretend
Have you ever seen a blind man as he stumbles and falls
Me I am just like the blind man
My hands are tied and I can't see anymore
So I take a drink from the cup
Then she politely knocks it over
I said I think that I've had enough
And she says no no this is not over
Because there is no innocence or beauty in
What I have seen in your face
So let's pretend
