Foo Fighters - ''The Pretender'' (Live At Wembley Stadium, 2008)





Lyrics


Keep you in the dark

You know they all pretend

Keep you in the dark

And so it all began


Send in your skeletons

Sing as their bones go marching in, again

The need you buried deep

The secrets that you keep are ever ready

Are you ready?

I'm finished making sense

Done pleading ignorance

That whole defense


Spinning infinity, boy

The wheel is spinning me

It's never-ending, never-ending

Same old story


What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?


In time our soul untold

I'm just another soul for sale, oh well

The page is out of print

We are not permanent

We're temporary, temporary

Same old story


What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?


I'm the voice inside your head

You refuse to hear

I'm the face that you have to face

Mirrored in your stare

I'm what's left, I'm what's right

I'm the enemy

I'm the hand that will take you down

Bring you to your knees


So who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

Yeah, who are you?


Keep you in the dark

You know they all pretend


What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?


What if I say I'm not like the others?

(Keep you in the dark)

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

(You know they all pretend)

You're the pretender

(Who dares)

What if I say I will never surrender?


What if I say I'm not like the others?

(Keep you in the dark)

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

(You know they all pretend)

You're the pretender

(Who dares)

What if I say I will never surrender?


So who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

Yeah, who are you?
