letra de the great pretender – dolly parton

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
adrift in a world of my own
i’ve played 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 heart can’t conceal

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 wearin’ my heart like a crown
pretending that you’re still around

too real is the feeling of make-believe
too real when i feel what my heart can’t conceal

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 wearin’ this old heart like a crown
pretending that you’re still around

but i know what i am
i am the great pretender
