The Great Pretender

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
Oh yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I play the game but to my real shame
You've 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
Yes I′m the great pretender
Just laughing 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
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can′t conceal
Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing 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
(Still around)
