Can We Pretend
Bill Withers

can we pretend
that from now on 
there is no yesterday 
paint a portrait of tomorrow 
with no colors from today

there’s a light that shine in your face sometimes 
that takes my feeling wraps them around your need 
but there’s shadow hiding in your heart sometimes 
that makes my feelings turn back in on me

can we pretend 
the pain is gone 
and go our merry way 
paint a portrait of tomorrow 
with the colors bright and gay

I remember a version in the 90s of a lovely day that had a faster beat, I don’t think is this one, but I cannot find it anywhere

Jam on this all day
