Can we pretend – P!nk new song
Written by Giulia on April 15, 2019
Pink talks about the flame of young love on her new song with the electronic trio Cash Cash, “Can We Pretend.”
The song will appear on Pink’s upcoming album, Hurts 2B Human, out April 26th via RCA Records. She has written the song with Cash Cash and Ryan Tedder.
Can We Pretend boasts a euphoric EDM pop beat filled with thumping drums and gooey synths.
Pink balances the feel-good vibes with a hit of nostalgia as she sings about the thrilling early days of a relationship in a way that suggest the present isn’t holding up so well.
I remember conversations
We were dancing up on tables
Taking pictures when we had nowhere to post
You were laughin’, I was cryin’
We were dancin’, we were dyin’
Sometimes I don’t know how we walked away
If I’m honest what I liked
Were the things we didn’t know
Every morning, every night
I’d be beating down your door
Just to tell you what I’m thinking
But you already know
Screw this, I don’t wanna let it go
So can we pretend that I’m 22 today?
Dancin’ on the tables with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we all end up okay?
I just wanna forget with you, oh yeah
Can we pretend that we both like the president?
Can we pretend that I really like your shoes? Hell yeah
Can we pretend? ‘Cause honestly, reality, it bores me
Let’s pretend, oh, let’s make believe
Can we, can we pretend?
