Don't You Pretend

Lyricist: Jesse Shatkin & Kelly Clarkson    Composer: Jesse Shatkin & Kelly Clarkson

Don't you pretend that you don't need a little more from me
You're actin' like it's nothin'
We both know it's somethin'
Even in the dark everyone can see
So don't you pretend that you're not wishin' I was next to you
Hot and cold as ever
Want me but you never let your guard down
And I need some proof

You make me want you but you don't know where this ends
Baby, I wanna love you, but I can't take the suspense

I said don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend, oh yeah

Try to deny and be cool as you walk away from me
Steady as you go, but tremblin' in your voice
Shows there's a part of you slowly dyin'
I'm not gonna wait and just play victim to your vanities
I don't have the time babe, tell me that you're mine babe
Why you keepin' your feelings from me

You make me want you but you don't know where this ends
Baby, I wanna love you, but I can't take the suspense

I said don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend, oh yeah

Don't you run and hide
Let's find out tonight
I got a feelin' that you wanna fall
Tell me yes or no
I can't take no more
I want the real thing or nothin' at all
I just wanna see, who you tryin’ to be

I said don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Oh, yeah, no, no

Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend
(I just wanna see who's in front of me
Who you tryin' to be)
Don't you pretend, oh yeah
