Versuri Jackson Browne - The Pretender



I'm going to rent myself a house 
In the shade of the freeway 
Going to pack my lunch in the morning 
And go to work each day 
And when the evening rolls around 
I'll go on home and lay my body down 
And when the morning light comes streaming in 
I'll get up and do it again 
Amen 
Say it again 
Amen 
 
I want to know what became of the changes 
We waited for love to bring 
Were they only the fitful dreams 
Of some greater awakening? 
I've been aware of the time going by 
They say in the end it's the wink of an eye 
And when the morning light comes streaming in 
You'll get up and do it again 
Amen 
 
Caught between the longing for love 
And the struggle for the legal tender 
Where the sirens sing and the Church bells ring 
And the junk man pounds his fender 
Where the veterans dream of the fight 
Fast asleep at the traffic light 
And the children solemnly wait 
For the icecream vendor 
Out into the cool of the evening 
Strolls the pretender 
He knows that all his hopes and dreams 
Begin and end there 
 
Ah, the laughter as they run through the night 
Leaving nothing but to choose off and fight 
And tear at the world with all their might 
While the ships bearing their dreams sail out of sight 
I'm going to find myself a girl 
Who can show me what laughter means 
And we'll fill in the missing colors 
In each other's paint by number dreams 
And then we'll put our dark glasses on 
And we'll make love until our strength is gone 
And when the morning light comes streaming in 
We'll get up and do it again 
Get it up again 
 
I'm going to be a happy idiot 
And struggle for the legal tender 
Where the ads take aim and lay their claim 
To the heart and the soul of the spender 
And believe in whatever may lie 
In those things that money can buy 
Though true love could have been a contender 
Are you there? 
Say a prayer for the pretender 
Who started out so young and strong 
Only to surrender 
 
Say a prayer for the pretender 
Are you there 
For the pretender? 
Say a prayer for the pretender 
Are you there 
For the pretender? 
Are you there 
For the pretender?
