Steve Aoki – Pretender lyrics

(feat. Lil Yachty & AJR)

[Verse 1: AJR]
I'm a good pretender
Won't you come see my show?
Won't you come see my show?
I've got lots of problems
Well, good thing nobody knows
Good thing nobody knows

[Pre-Chorus: AJR]
Oh, I'm insecure, I'm insecure
I think I like what I'm supposed to
Like what I'm supposed to
I don't even mess with drugs
I do that 'cause you say it's dope to
You say it is dope to

[Chorus: AJR]
I'm a good pretender
I'm not really cool
I'm a good pretender
'Cause I'm just like you
I do not belong here
You all clearly do
But I'm a good pretender
So I'm just like you

[Refrain: AJR]
I'm a good pretender
I'm a good pretender

[Verse 2: Lil Yachty]
Steve Aoki
Lil Boat
I look happy in every picture
Just so you'd think I am
I never say no to pictures
'Cause that's just the person I am
In high school, I was tryna figure myself out
I was tryna be just like him (okay)
Tryna do things I don't usually do (why?)
I'm pretending to be too cool
I wish my mother had more sons
I wish my friends were my brothers
I wish my ex-girlfriend didn't cheat, she pretended to be my lover
In front of the camera screen
I make it look just like a movie scene
Diamonds on my hand, call me Lord of The Rings
Still insecure behind the scenes, though

[Pre-Chorus: AJR]
Oh, I'm insecure, I'm insecure
I think I like what I'm supposed to
Like what I'm supposed to
I don't even mess with drugs
I do that 'cause you say it's dope to
You say it is dope to

[Chorus: AJR & Lil Yachty, & Both]
I'm a good pretender
I'm not really cool (okay)
I'm a good pretender (yah)
'Cause I'm just like you (you)
I do not belong here (no)
You all clearly do
But I'm a good pretender
'Cause I'm just like you

[Refrain: AJR]
I'm a good pretender
I'm a good pretender

[Bridge: AJR]
I'm just ike you, do you like me too?
Now I'm just like you
I'm a good pretender
I'm just ike you, do you like me too?
Now I'm just like you
Now I'm just like you

[Chorus: AJR & Lil Yachty, & Both]
I'm a good pretender
I'm not really cool (okay)
'Cause I'm just like you
'Cause I'm just like you (you)
I do not belong here (no)
You all clearly do
But I'm a good pretender
'Cause I'm just like you

[Refrain: AJR]
Just like you
I'm a good pretender (I mean I really like you)
I'm a good pretender
