LET'S JUST PRETEND IT DIDN'T HAPPEN (4:09)

Let's Just Pretend It Didn't Happen - 1991

Words' penultimate track, fits nicely into the forgiveness and hope themes of the album. Again, I felt the album trailed off a touch at this point, with the best of the album long passed.

Lyrics

Supposin' we said it didn't happen
Didn't happen at all
Didn't happen at all

Empty and gone
There is nothing left within
One penny in a tin
Makes all the noise

You don't understand
Nothing stays the same
Situations change

And it's all different now
I've made my choice

Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Supposin' we said it didn't
Come down that way at all
Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Did it happen at all
Didn't happen at all

I thought at the time
When you cut me to the core
It hurt and made me sore
In time it would mend

It hasn't you see
I forgive but can't forget
I tried so hard and yet
I'm afraid it's the end

We can never be friends

Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Supposin' we said it didn't
Come down that way at all
Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Did it happen at all
Does it matter at all?

No going back
We can't undo the past
Oh you know it's built to last
It outlives you and I

I'm trying trying to say
In this time and in this place
Here and now and face to face
With a tear eye to eye
It's goodbye

Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Supposin' we said oh it didn't
Come down that way at all
Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Didn't happen at all
Didn't happen at all

Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Supposin' we said it didn't
Come down that way at all
Let's just pretend it didn't happen
Didn't happen at all
Didn't happen at all
