The Great Pretender… 

 

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 heart can’t conceal

Ooh ooh 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

Yeah ooh hoo

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

I’m wearing my heart like a crown

Pretending that you’re

Pretending that you’re still around

 

Another great legend, Freddie Mercury. I feel every word of this song as if it were written about me. The mask that I have to put in place daily to protect others.
