great pretender lyrics – dan mccafferty

oh yes i’m the great pretender
pretending that i’m doin’ 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 left me to dream alone
too real is this feelin’ of make believe
too real what i feel, what my heart can’t conceal
oh 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 feelin’ of make believe
too real what i feel, what my heart can’t conceal
oh yes i’m the great pretender
pretending that you’re still around
pretending that you’re still around
pretending that you’re still around
