What I’m Going to Do, Sarah Connor / Juleigh Howard Hobson


I’m going to pretend you’re my mother, I

Know you don’t really exist, that you are

Just an actor, that the role is just your

Job. But I’m going to pretend. It’s why

I won’t kill myself with crashing the car

Headlong into the freeway divider

By grabbing the steering wheel when she takes

Me to school. I’ll pretend she’s my foster

Mom, who brings me places, makes me do chores.

I’ll pretend I have to stay with her, make

The best of it while you are away for

Hollywood, that you love me, that I’m yours,

That when you’re back everything will be fixed

Perfect. Meanwhile, I have you on Netflix.
