Here are the lyrics of the song: “Just Pretend“
(from “That’s The Way It Is” soundtrack)
And whispering things soft and low
And think of me, how it’s gonna be,
Just pretend I didn’t go
When I walked away, I heard you say
If you need me, you know what to do
I knew it then, I’d be back again
Just pretend I’m right there with youAnd I’ll come flying to you, again
All the crying is true
Oh, I will hold you and love you again
But until then, we’ll just pretendOh, it’s funny but I can’t recall the things
We said or why you’re crying
But now I know it was wrong to go
I belong here by your side
