Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo – Pretender

Verse 1:
What lies
Behind
Your pretty house with the white picket fence
And all the Barbies that you call your friends?
Is your life
A lie?
Nothing’s as good as it seems
And you’re not the girl of their dreams

Pre-Chorus:
Oh, and maybe your life is all flowers
Maybe I’m insecure
Maybe you’re good at taking pictures
Maybe you’re a pretender (Oh)

Chorus:
Pretender
I’m pointing my finger at you
Pretender
If only they knew what I knew
Yeah, if only they knew what I knew (Mmm, mmm)

Verse 2:
I’m happy
With me
Think that’s supposed to be enough
So why am I sulking, calling your bluff?

Pre-Chorus:
Maybe your life is all flowers
Maybe I’m insecure
And maybe you’re good at taking pictures
You’re a pretender-er-er

Chorus:
Pretender
I’m pointing my finger at you
Pretender
If only they knew what I knew
Yeah, if only they knew what I knew (Ah, mmm)

Bridge:
Pretender
I guess you’re really not so bad
Maybe you pretend
But you look like you got the life I wish I had
I created you
To be plastic and deadly
I created you
To hide my own envy
To hide my own envy, yeah

Chorus:
Pretender
I wish I knew what you knew
Pretender
If only I was like you
Maybe I’m a pretender like you
