      About "The Great Pretender"

      Lyrics for Roy Orbison - "The Great Pretender"

      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 grieve all alone

      Too real is this feeling of make-believe
      Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

      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 wearing my heart like a crown
      Pretending that you're still around

      Too real is this feeling of make-believe
      Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

      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 wearing my heart like a crown
      Pretending that you're still around
