"The Great Pretender" as written by Christine Flores, Montell Du'sean Jordan and Bernard Edwards....
(Buck Ram)

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
