Pretending
Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 6
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: May 23, 2011
By: Glee original composition
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Finn and Rachel
Place: 2011 National Show Choir Championship
Episode: New York

Pretending is an original song featured in New York, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Two. It is sung by Finn and Rachel with the New Directions.

It is written by Finn, and before they perform, Rachel tells Finn that "he wrote an amazing song," which causes Finn to admit to her that he still has feelings for her. However, while Rachel tells Finn that the feelings are mutual, she can't let him get in the way of her career in the future.

At the end of the song, they share an unplanned kiss in front of the crowd to express their true feelings for each other, leaving the crowd shocked. After the New Directions are done performing, Jesse calls out Finn and Rachel's kiss, calling it "vulgar" and "unprofessional" and that it would cost them the Nationals title. His theory is proven correct when the New Directions misses the top 10 by two places, placing at 12th.

Lyrics

Finn and Rachel:
Face to face and heart to heart
We're so close yet so far apart
I close my eyes I look away
That's just because I'm not OK

Rachel:
But I hold on

Rachel with Finn:
I stay strong
Wondering if we still belong

Finn and Rachel:
Will we ever say the words we're feeling?
Reach down underneath and tear down all the walls
Will we ever have a happy ending?
Or will we forever only be pretending?
Will we al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always be pretending?

Finn with Rachel:
How long do I fantasize?
Make believe that it’s still alive
Imagine that I am good enough
And we can choose the ones we love

Finn:
But I hold on

Finn with Rachel:
I stay strong
Wondering if we still belong

Finn and Rachel:
Will we ever say the words we're feeling?
Reach down underneath and tear down all the walls
Will we ever have a happy ending?
Or will we forever only be pretending?
Will we al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always be

Keeping secrets safe
Every move we make
Seems like no one's letting go
And it’s such a shame
'Cause if you feel the same
How am I supposed to know?

Finn and Rachel with New Directions:
Will we ever say the words we're feeling? (Rachel: Oh, oh!)
Reach down underneath and tear down all the walls (Rachel: Tear down all the walls)
Will we ever have a happy ending?
Or will we forever only be pretending? (Finn: Only be pretending)

Rachel with New Directions (with Finn):
Will we al-al-al-al (-ways)
(al-al-al-al) -ways, (Finn: al-al) al-al-al-always be

Rachel:
Pretending? oh! (Finn: Pretending?)

New Directions (with Rachel):
Will we al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always, al-al-al-al (-ways be) (Finn: al-al)

Rachel:
Pretending? (Finn: Pretending?)

Finn and Rachel with New Directions:
Will we al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always, al-al-al-always be

Finn and Rachel:
Pretending?
