The party was over, it was nearly a quarter to two
Hearing your voice was the last thing I thought I would do
Seeing your face brought the pain back again just like new
Now I'm right back where I was I am lost without you.

I stood in a daze as you put your hand gently in mine
Once again, lost in the look of your love, so divine
I know you don't mean it, but tell me you love me again
I know we are over, but wrap me in lies that don't end.

I'll close my eyes so you won't see the tears
Let's make the best of those bittersweet years.

Let's pretend
We are lovers again,
Let's pretend
Our romance didn't end,

I'll play my part,
I won't ask you for more,
Won't pull you back
When you walk out the door,

Just let me love you
For one hour more,
Let's pretend
We are lovers again.

I know that I will go home without you tonight,
I know there's nothing that I could do now to make it right,
Still I could dream that you never had walked out my door,
Still I could dream all my life if you kiss me once more.

I'll close my eyes so you won't see the tears,
Let's make the best of those bittersweet years.

Let's pretend
We are lovers again,
Let's pretend
Our affair didn't end,

I'll play my part,
I won't ask you for more,
Won't pull you back
When you walk out the door,

Just let me love you for one hour more,
Let's pretend we are lovers again.

Everyone's left for the night,
The glasses are empty
No one will see us, I know
No one will know that I can't let you go.

I've got to learn to let go and you must teach me how
I love your arms wrapped around me like this even now,
Maybe if you give me just one more kiss

I'll learn it's something I really don't miss,
I'll close my eyes so you won't see the tears
Let's make the most of those bittersweet years.

Let's pretend
We are lovers again,
Let's pretend
Our romance didn't end,

I'll slip away in the night without you
But I'll have something to comfort me, too,
Just for old times,
Kiss me once before the night ends,
Let's pretend we are lovers again.

Let's pretend
We are lovers again,
Let's pretend
We are lovers again.
Let's pretend
We are lovers again.
