I'm a Pretender
The Exploding Hearts Lyrics


I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my heart
I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my foolish heart

21 and it ain't no fun
My life's going by but it's just begun
I'm searchin' and searchin' and i'm lookin' around
Ain't gonna cry cuz there's no one to be found

I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my heart
I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my foolish heart

Took ya down to the avenue
Weather was cool, so i bought you some food
But i got so nervous when you asked me to come home
Went in my house and spent the night all alone

I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my heart
I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my foolish heart

I know, when you're a pretender
Your mind's wild from the start
Just gimme one chance baby
Help me shadow my heart
Gimme one chance baby,
Help me shatter my heart

Just won't cry cuz my life's goin' by
I'll find someone before the day i die
Gimme a chance and show me what to do
Couple a minutes i'll be doin' it with you

I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my heart
I'm a pretender at the game of love
Need somebody help me shatter my foolish heart
I'm a pretender (x6)
Stand up pretender
I'm a pretender at the game of love
I'm a pretender at the game of love
I'm a pretender at the game of love
I'm a pretender

I'm a punk lover from China. When I first found this song at university, I was immediately attracted. Thinking they might be some unknown bands from the 80s, I started to dig for more information, I was surprised that they came from 2003, ain't all music after 00s are shit? Also then I knew about their tragedy..... I guess the good things are just not going to last.... Now 10 years has passed, I still enjoy this! I recommend "the Pretender" to many of my friends, I have it in my phone and my car, it reminds me how good the old punks are, how great my university years were.....

I love this song so much, but it hits me every time I hear him sing "lifes goin' by, but its just begun"
RIP Adam Cox, Jeremy Gage, Matt Fitzgerald. Your legacies will live on through your amazing music. Gone but never forgotten.

I remember when I was 16 driving around in my car all spring, summer and fall...listening to this record. The exploding hearts is my all time favorite band.....23 now.

I first heard this when I was 14 and thought the song was made for me. Now I'm 21 and can truly relate to the words. It's quite sad actually.

Jay Johnston
