    Post meaning of this sentence

    hi everyone.it's my first post here,i hope it's right place for this question:

    here's the sentence:

    i don't have to pretend,
    she doesn't expect it from me.

    it's part of a song lyric.

    i want to know whether it means she doesn't expect me to pretend or i don't have to pretend that she doesn't expect it (whatever it is) from me??

    thanks.

    Welcome to the forums. Yes - this is a good place to ask.

    "I do not have to pretend and she does not expect me to pretend".

    By the way, capital letter at the start of each sentence. "I" is always a capital letter. One space following any punctuation.

    A lot is written as two separate words (this is a very common mistake among native English speakers).

    thanks for correcting me,actually I didn't expect so much attention to every single word we write here.
    I'd always writea lot as one word,and no one ever told me about the correct form of that.
