or
Cee Lo

Well, I'm a species so rare, the human eyes hardly seen
A thin line between divine and killing machine
A dark side of the light that no one ever should see
Oh, I feel for the foolish for fucking with me

There's a war inside me but the water is still
You'll be safer every time assuming it will
Yet to lose my composure, I don't normally do
I just thought that you should know I've been sicker than you

You don't know me, no record can't tell ya
Oh oh, I'm the great pretender
I said you don't know me, no record can't tell ya
Oh oh, I'm the great pretender

You say you want my pain, my own personal pain
A lot of hurt, heartache and hard times, it's hard to explain
I could feel the anger starting to happen again
I'd bust your head and break your brain for five minutes of fame

My heart beats with unconditional love
But beware of the blackness that it's capable of
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You got to travel the road of a troubled soul
I'm tryin' so hard not to lose control
Oh yeah, oh yeah

You don't know me, no record can't tell ya
Oh oh, I'm the great pretender, some great pretender
I said you don't know me, no record can't tell ya
Oh oh, I'm the great pretender, some great pretender

They say, "In life you shouldn't worry
Just got to let the wind blow", hey
You see every day I'm strugglin'
For the strength to let it go, hey

You don't know me
(No record can't tell ya)
You don't know me
I'm tryin' so hard
Said you don't know, oh oh, oh oh
Said you don't know me
No record can't tell ya

I'm the great, I'm the great pretender
I said you don't know me
I'm the great pretender
Said you don't know
No record can't tell ya

Oh oh, I'm the great pretender
I'm the great pretender
You don't know me
No record can't tell ya
Oh oh, I'm the great pretender
I said you don't know me
