Oh-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-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
A drift in a world of my own
I've played the game but to my real shame
You've left me to grieve all alone
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
(Instrumental)
(Repeat verse 2)

Oh-oh, yes, I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' 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
That you're still around
