Master Pretender Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Never thought that I was weak
Always thought I could get hurt pretty bad
Still get up on my own two feet
Verse 2
I always believed that I was free
That I had some sense of integrity
That would rise above whatever tried to change me
Verse 3
But honey now I won't wait
For something to bring me around and smile
'Cause that only sticks for a while
Then I'm back again
Verse 4
Oh, I'm a master pretender
Verse 5
I always knew that I was young
But with a head held high and a shotgun
I could fool almost anyone
Verse 6
I never expected to be struck
By the fatal hands of fortune or by sheer bad luck
Verse 7
By now we won't change
And memories just rearrange
And fall into place
So I'm back again
Verse 8
Oh, I'm a master pretender
Verse 9
All the streets of New York city
Sure it look pretty from way up here
And I was headed home, just found more alone
The further I'd go
Verse 10
I always thought that you'd be here
But shit gets fucked up and people just disappear
Verse 11
So honey now don't be mad
Time has told me it can't be that bad
And if it is, well, big goddamn but I'll stick around
Verse 12
I'll be your master defender
Yeah, I'll stick around
I'll be your master defender
