about

Play Pretend is one of the first songs written by Emmy Rival. Produced by Grammy nominated producer, Dane Diamond of Class Faction, this song is an eclectic blend of city and folk.

lyrics

Someone saw you down on main street
Playing checkers on the road
They said you'd lost your mind on main street
But I know, it's where I left you all alone

Now they all said that I'd be blameless
And all would heal that now is broke
But I can't help but feel so careless
Cause I know every word we spoke

So, trust me it's better this way
It's all in your head
You said that I'd feel better one day
But I can't pretend
Won't play pretend

So now I'm dancing all around you
It's all playing in my mind
But it's all gray and I can't find you
Baby this old town ain't been so kind

So, trust me it's better this way
It's all in your head
They said I'd feel better one day
But I can't pretend
Won't play pretend
