Do you wander through this life
Like a child without a care?
Do you fear the things you love?
Do you seek the things you fear?
When the world comes crashin' down
Do you just smile and say

I am the great pretender (oh yeah)
Willing to dream forever!
Oh I'll just float away and let the waves keep
Pullin' me in
I'll just hang out here and watch the world pass
Over my head
Because I still believe in
All of the things you said.

Well are you searchin' for the truth
But all you come across is lies?
Someone sabatoged your room
Left all the answers in disguise
When the world comes crashin' down
Do you just smile and say

I am the great pretender (oh yeah)
Willing to dream forever
Oh I just float away and let the waves keep
Pullin' me in
I'll just hang out here and watch the world pass
Over my head
Because I still believe in
All of the things you said.

Why do I try?
Whoaoh why do I try?
Yeah why do I try?

Oh I am the great pretender (Oh yeah)
Willin' to dream forever
Whoa right now I said I am the great
I am the great
I am the great pretender
And oh I just float away
And let the waves keep
Pullin' me in
I'll just hang out here and watch the world pass
Over my head
Becuase I still beleive in
All of the things you said, yeah, yeah, whoa right now I said
I am the great pretender, yeah
You know that
I am the great pretender, hey ya know what I'm sayin' is
I still beleive in
All of the things you said
Oh, all of the things you said.
