OMG, is this Johnny Cash? I thought you were dead, seriously, you sound like Cash, You should do some country songs, you'd be famous. and great guitar playing too.

    - Barry Osbourn

The engaging, beautiful guitar intro is perfect for this highly poetical composition. The song consistently uses an oceanic metaphor that is gently and skillfully woven through the whole composition. It's one of those memorable songs that poses questions poetically that no one can really answer, but we all love hearing it so poignantly expressed. Obviously, this writer is a skilled lyricist and is highly original. Bravo! I absolutely love the interplay between the 2 guitars. Five star guitars! Favorite lyric: Sweet salt air just before you die. The last line is a keeper, too "not defined by who we really are." You've got some great stuff here...keep it coming!

    - Kate Carpenter
Lyrics

Let's Pretend
© 2014 Sahlen-Starburst

Let's pretend reality is not a way of life
Screaming through the ebbs and flows imagined in the night
Gravitating promises, mitigating smiles
Let's pretend insanity lingers just a while

Let's pretend the undertow of life is but a dream
Lurking in the shadows far outside mainstream
Crossing moats of safety nets to castles of the mind
Let's pretend the universe is all we've left behind

(chorus)
Can you hear the plaintive groans as they testify?
Can you smell the sweet salt air just before you die?

(instrumental break)

(chorus)
Can you hear the plaintive groans as they testify?
Can you smell the sweet salt air just before you die?

Let's pretend the sun shines bright where monsters dare to go
Lighting special secrets buried deeply down below
Illuminating our true selves when we've gone too far
Let's pretend we're not defined by who we really are
Let's pretend we're not defined by who we really are
