No Pretender

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

I was a big shot
Yeah they would stop and stare
I played the big part
Until I realized that no one really cares

but then they found me
into the chair I’m thrust
enjoy the wonder
and I decide to bring my friends with us

this is the role for which I was born

I’m no pretender
This is who I am
Never surrender
Never give up, never, never, never, give a damn

so we may stumble
and take a few scratches
we’ll take some tumbles
and don’t mind us if we have to be evasive

we are resourceful
but growing pains can hurt
we’ll take control
and we may just happen to lose our shirts

but I’m dedicated to this craft

I’m no pretender
This is who I am
Never surrender
Never give up- never, never, give a damn

I must tell the truth how
I usually don’t do this sort of thing
in fact we’re usually pretending
but I’m not pretending right now

we’ll never give up
yeah, we will persevere
we conquer monsters
yeah, but most of them are our own fears

I take a moment
before it fades to black
I use my hindsight
and suddenly I am taken right back

we’re a pretty damn good crew

I’m no pretender
This is who I am
Never surrender
Never give up- never, never, give a damn
