The Pretender - Jackson Browne (杰克逊·布朗)

Written by:Jackson Browne

 

I'm going to rent myself a house

 

In the shade of the freeway

 

I'm 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 ice cream 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 of the lovers

As they run through the night

 

Leaving nothing for the others

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 out dark glasses on

 

And we'll make love until our strength is gone

 

When 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

 

Thought 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 prepare for the pretender
