Approve the Pretender

from by Nick Karch

lyrics

He's sitting by himself in the middle of the room
On the chair, he's staying there and he won't be leaving soon
Takes out the old guitar to play his simple song
Looks around to see who's there, but no one to say he's wrong

Somebody tell him!
I wanna tell them!
Nobody sees the crime take place
Don't go to him!
Don't approve him!
Just let him play without a trace

The pretender tries to steal our eyes
And they all watch in awe
But I know what I saw
And it reminds me of someone I used to know
But understanding what went wrong
You learned your lesson long ago

Always finding us with the corners of his eyes
But he can't find his glory no matter how he tries
Still playing all his songs, he doesn't understand
Sing with security, I just don't think he can

Somebody tell him!
I wanna tell them!
I've seen so many do the same
Don't go to him!
Don't approve him!
Let him discover who's to blame

The pretender tries to steal our eyes
And they all watch in awe
But I know what I saw
And it reminds me of someone I used to know
But understanding what went wrong
You learned your lesson long ago
