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've played the game, But to my real shame, You've left me to grieve 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.
