The Great Pretender

 

 

 

 

Oh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending Im doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
Im lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
Youve left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Ooh ooh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what Im not (you see)
Im wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you’re still around

Yeah ooh hoo
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

Oh yes Im the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what Im not you see
Im wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that youre
Pretending that you’re still around

The first verse sums me up perfectly

  1. This reminds me a little bit of the Blues Traveler song called “The Hook.”
    In so much of it, he’s basically just telling us how silly the industry is, and yet most people don’t hear the words, they just like the catchiness of it..the hook.

    I wonder often about fame and people up there on that platform. How often they share these truths with everyone as an expression of their reality, and also as a reminder that even with the higher income and lots of attention, they can still feel like everyone else most of the time.
