"Pretender" as written by and Sarah A. Jaffe....
Here's your chance
I give you what you want
I am a giver
Here's your chance
To tell me what you want
I'm a forgiver

When nobody's around
I try and I take care
I must deliver
When nobody is home
I will knock at the door
I'm a pretender

Here's your chance
I give you what you want
I am a giver
Here's your chance
To tell me what you want
I'm a forgiver

When nobody's around
I try and I take care
I must deliver
When nobody is home
I will knock at the door
I'm a pretender

So, here we stand
Like flowers in the cold wilt and wither
Here's your chance
Tell me what you want
I'm a forgiver

    General CommentI think she's saying, "When nobody's at home, I will knock at the door" ....Makes more sense that way too.

    General CommentI thought she was saying when no one is home i will not get the door cause shes 'not home' you know? She doesn't even see herself as a real person, just a desperate act. Such a sad song
