The Great Pretender
The Platters Lyrics


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 grieve all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

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 wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughin' and gay like the clown
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
(Still around)

The Platters
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 yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I play 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
Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown
I seem to be what I'm not you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around
(Still around)

Do you know Jesus, If not let me share him with you. God created the world, He made people, Adam and Eve. They lived together In happiness and peace, There was no sin or death, but God instructed them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, because they would surely die.
When Eve was walking near the tree the serpent "The devil." Deceived her, and tricked her Into eating the fruit, yet she did not die so, Adam ate of It as well. Suddenly they felt morality, They knew they where naked so they hid from God.
God knew what had happened, so he found the two of them hiding, He asked them why they where hiding, They answered "Because we are naked."
God asked them who had told them that, they answered the serpent. Had tricked them Into eating the fruit. God already knew this.
God Punished Adam and Eve accordingly, death was Introduced, as a regular part of life. Pain. And sin. But the LORD Promised to send us a savior, to save us from our sin.
Over a few thousand years later, during the time of the Roman's, God sent Down his son Jesus to save us, Jesus was In the form of man, but was fully man, and fully God.
Jesus started his ministries when he was thirty, when he set of, He invited 12 men to join him. They where called his disciples or the 12 disciples.
Jesus traveled around, With disciples for three years. He preformed many miracles. He turned water to wine, He brought a dead man back to life.
He Loved everyone He ministered to the poor sick, and the people who others would avoid. He Loved everyone.
But the pharisees hated him, They considered his preaching Blasphemous
They wanted Jesus dead, so they struck a deal with Judas, One of Jesus's Disciples. Judas told the pharisees Where Jesus was. They went there and arrested him.
He went through a trial, He was mocked, beaten spit on. A crown of thorns placed on his head. He endured lashes, Lash (A whip with metal, and or bones to make It stick to the skin.)
Finally he was sentenced to death, on a cross. Where he nailed to the cross, through the wrists, and feet.
Right before he died he asked God to forgive those who had harmed him, that's how Loving he Is.
Finally when he died he took our sin's with him, He saved Us from them. He was dead for three days, but rose again. And anyone who believes In him will live forever.

I'm sorry It's late, I'm tired, this is an oversimplification, So please, If you don't listen to me at least try to with someone else, like the pastor at your local church
But please don't regard what I'm saying as a fairy tale, because it's not It's the truth. So please just try out church, and see if you believe or not. How can you Know If you don't try, so please what do you have to loose.
