THE GREAT PRETENDER

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 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

Mozart – Violin Concerto No. 1 in B flat, K. 207 [complete] – Música

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Salzburg, 27 de gener de 1756 − Viena, 5 de desembre de 1791) fou un compositor austríac, àmpliament considerat un dels més destacats de la història de la música occidental. La seva influència va ser profundíssima, tant en el món germànic com en el llatí. A diferència de qualsevol altre compositor en la història musical, va escriure en tots els gèneres musicals de la seva època i va excel·lir-ne en cadascú, així com per la seva sorprenent fluïdesa de composició.
