The Platters

The great pretender* (Video)

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender
Pretending 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.

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my hear 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.
