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, yes, I'm the great pretender,
Adrift in a world of my own;
I play the game, but to my real shame,
You've left me to dream all alone.

(Bridge:)
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,

(Coda:)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown,
Pretending that you're still around,
Still around.
