Buck ram

Oh-oh, yes Im the great pretender
Pretending that Im doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
Im lonely but no one can tell

Oh-oh, yes Im the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
Ive played the game but to my real shame
Youve 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 Im the great pretender
Just laughin and gay like a clown
I seem to be what Im not, you see
Im 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 Im the great pretender
Just laughin and gay like a clown
I seem to be what Im not, you see
Im wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
