                            "Let's Pretend"
                             (Eric Carmen)

Verse 1:

	G       F/G
	I can't sleep nights
	Am                Bm     C  CaddD/A
	Wishing you were here beside me
	 G         F/G
	Can't help feelin'
	Am7                D7      G
	That's the way it ought to be

	                 B7/D#           Em
	You know we could run (run, run away)
	               D7/F#    G        /B            C    Am7  Am7/D
	But I couldn't bear to hear the things they'd say,  oh no

[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/raspberries/lets_pretend_crd.html ]
	       G                  Bm                   C     /B  Am7
	Baby, let's pretend that tonight could live forever
	      FaddG                Am7/D     D7         G    CaddD  /D
	If we close our eyes and believe it might come true
	       G                     Bm                          C    /B Am7
	Baby, let's pretend we could always [1,4: be 2,3: live] together
	       FaddG            Am7/D      D7        B7
	But for now just let me spend the night with you

	  [1:  CaddD /D; to verse 2]
	  [2:  to bridge]
	  [3, 4:  CaddD /D; repeat]

Verse 2:

	Somehow, someday
	Things are gonna be so different
	Don't cry, some way
	I promise it'll be all right
	So now that we're all alone
	I couldn't bear to leave to take you home, oh no

	[repeat chorus]


	            C                B7sus4 B7
	So take me now, my love can't wait
	              Em        G7/D
	We're almost there now, darlin', darlin'
	 C                  Am
	Hold me (hold me), hold me (hold me)
	FaddG   D7sus4
	Ho-oh-old me

[repeat chorus to end; start to fade 2nd time]
