How many times must we tell the tale?
How many times must we fall?
Living in lost memory
You just recalled

Working on the sound of the band
Trying to get the music right
Two go out working
Three stay home at night

[Chorus:]
That's when she said she was pretending
Like she knew the plan
That's when I knew she was pretending
Pretending to understand
