Pretenders (Bad Religion)

I give to you, you take from me We live in perfect harmony But I know you cant give me what I need Wwith subtle care and rosey hues We duke it out, we change our views We hold so dear our unanimity Oh... We are just pretenders We are just pretenders, lost in this charade We are just pretenders, characters on stage We are just pretenders, trying to break free We are just pretenders, hiding so no one sees We try to find our peace of mind Just a vestige we left behind But ignorance takes far less energy And if you please, Ill look to you Because I need somebody who Forgives me for my harsh reality Oh...but We are just pretenders We are just pretenders, were trying to break free We are just pretenders, well lose them easily We are just pretenders, trying to break free We are just pretenders, hiding so no one sees You standing there Playing with your hair Trying to ignore But peeking in the mirror Re-living the scenes From books and magazines Craving the life You live in your dreams And Im standing here Thinking that its queer But fearing that I am the same You ask me how I feel Its so damn surreal I think its finally time we ended this game cause we are just pretenders We are just pretenders, lost in this charade We are just pretenders...
