The Great Pretender

The Platters

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender
Pretending that I'm going well
My need is such; I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender
A drift in a world of my own
I play the game; but to my real shame
You've let me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when 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 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
