This Pretender

This Pretender

Joe Diffie

Here you come knockin' on my heart like a sledge hammer
Tearin' down these walls I built so high
I'm tryin' to hide the truth behind all this false glamour
But somehow the truth still shows up in my eyes

Got a smile painted on my face
Got my heartache locked away prayin' you won't see
Stayin' steady, stayin' strong
Actin' like there's nothin' wrong 'til you look at me
Won't win this fight I surrender
So turn another page of this pretender

Sometimes I think I put it all behind me and I'm finally healing
If you judge a book by it's cover then I'm alright
For a moment I find some piece of mind that my heart is stealing
Looks like I'm livin' it up but I'm dyin' down deep inside
Oh yeah

Got a smile painted on my face
Got my heartache locked away prayin' you won't see
Stayin' steady, stayin' strong
Actin' like there's nothin' wrong 'til you look at me
Won't win this fight I surrender
So turn another page of this pretender

Won't win this fight I surrender
Mmm Mmm turn another page of this pretender
Pretender, still your pretender
Turn another page
Pretender, still your pretender
I'm livin' a lie I can't deny it
Pretender, still your pretender
It's never ending, I'm always pretending
Pretender, still your pretender
