Lyric "The Great Pretender"

[Verse 1]
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Pretending that I'm doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

[Verse 2]
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I've played the game but to my real shame
You've left me to grieve all alone
[Bridge]
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

[Verse 3]
Yes, I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

[Bridge]
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

[Verse 4]
Yes, I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
