Hey baby tell me what we’re gonna do
It’s getting crazy and I need some help from you
We were so connected that you were a part of me
Now I feel an emptiness right to the heart of me

But you pretend and I pretend
That everything is fine
And though we should be at an end
It’s so hard admittin’
When it’s quittin’ time

Hey baby I’m running out of things to say
Please don’t hate me this feeling just won’t go away
Now we’re spending all our time caught in a fantasy
Just trying to keep in mind the way it used to be

But you pretend and I pretend
That everything is fine
And though we should be at an end
It’s so hard admittin’
When it’s quittin’ time

But you pretend and I pretend
That everything is fine
And though we should be at an end
It’s so hard admittin’
When it’s quittin’ time

  1. Oh, how I do love that song. One time I heard her perform it as a slow ballad, and it was quite a heartbreaker. [Of course, the fact that the harmony is all in my range doesn’t hurt a bit]
