PRETEND

I’m trying to find a purpose
Not having Any luck
The songs have all been written
The children all grown up
All that’s left to do here
Is waking up for bed
And trying to quiet
The voices in my head.

What have I become?
What is left to do?
This game is meant for young men
The stages I’ve been through
Have led me to the middle
Which feels much like the end
I can’t find a purpose
And it’s too hard to pretend.

I’m trying to find a purpose
But the growing has all stopped
The days all lead to nothing
And the points have all been dropped
And I keep driving circles
Like I haven’t reached the end
Pretending I don’t see it
Again again again.

What have I become?
What is left to do?
This game is meant for young men
The stages I’ve been through
Have led me to the middle
Which feels just like the end
I can’t find a purpose
And it’s too hard to pretend.

The phone alarm is ringing
I was dreaming I was singing
The singer he was smiling
Trying to tell me something.
What have You become?
There’s so much left to do?
I know you’re not a young man
But there’s more stages for you
And what’s wrong with the middle
Why’s that such a sin
Now go fulfill your purpose
You were born to play pretend.

Now the show it has begun
I brought the band and the crew
I know I’m not a young man
But I’ll wear myself out for you
I’ll stand right in the middle
Of this stage once again
Do my best to make you happy
Until the very end
We can play pretend
We can play pretend
Until the very end
