This pop-punk song finds Machine Gun Kelly hooking with a girl for a night of passion. He wants a real, lasting relationship with someone, but he's running hot for this lady and happy to "play pretend" with her rather than having nothing.
Machine Gun Kelly penned the song with his regular writing partner Nick Long, rapper and musician Mod Sun, and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, who also produced the track.
It was Mod Sun who came up with the song title. I can't stay forever, let's play pretend And treat this night like it'll happen again You'll be my bloody valentine tonight In-studio footage showing the making of the song revealed the hook originally ended with the line: I'll take the blame, won't remember your name MGK wasn't happy with the lyric and he told Mod Sun he wanted something "more iconic." MGK proposed "I'll be your Valentine massacre tonight." Mod Sun then suggested "my bloody valentine tonight."
