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.
