This brand new song speaks about how the artist has to play pretend when it comes to confronting his feelings for the girl he lost.
Delvin seems to have endured a painful breakup and he is still suffering from the after-effects. Once she was the air he breathed in, and now he is a ghost to her. He hears a repeat of her voice and smiles in his head, still.
“And I miss the glare when I look into your eyes…”
Delvin has trouble sleeping as she is the only thing he dreams of. He lies to his friends that is “okay” after the breakup. However, he admits that only God would know if he could ever win this game of “play pretend.”
Verse 2 of the song admits that Delvin and the girl faced some issues through the sleepless nights. But they also made up by the morning. Guess the broken glasses can never be fixed.
The lyrics are beautifully written and Delvin is able to capture the emotions of post-breakup-heartaches in his vocals, despite the electronic and upbeat music of the track.
