Todd Rundgren - Pretending To Care Lyrics




Today I am your chariot horse
Tomorrow I'm your albatross
Suspended by the finest thread
No one could ever see
And when there's breathing in your ear
You put your faith in all you hear
But just how deep those feelings go
I have no way to know
I'll never know

If I was blind
Would you still be my eyes
Or hide everything you see
Pretending to care about me

When all the time
You're just wishing I'd fade away
You just can't bring yourself to

Say out loud the reasons why
You won't admit you realize
The promise you've been living by
Is just an empty shell
You'll come to bear it like a cross
Then start to tear it like frayed gauze
Though I'm ashamed to be afraid
I just can't help myself
Can't help myself

Todd Rundgren Pretending To Care Comments
  1. Seppo Innanen

    Mr Rundgren, top three all the time best voices in rock. And I don't even have a clue about the other two that could be at his level

  2. Gary Nelson

    I heard this on radio recently and thought it something from BWay, Sondheim stuff. Just deeply touching.

  3. 吉田さつき

    Beautiful.

  4. James J

    One of Todd's most beautiful songs. Heart breakingly, achingly, forsakingly gorgeous.

  5. Rosie Vela

    Todd Rundgren is King RockStar

  6. Gerry Kulpa

    In a word MASTERPIECE

  7. Randy Keith

    An album a couple of decades ahead of its time; well before accapella became a "thing". A very underrated album.

  8. Ben Champion

    A Cappella is super underrated it’s my second favourite of Todd’s after AWATS.

    Ben Champion How true ... Such incredible works, I listen to them over and over again.

    Todd Fan

    Way ahead of his time!

  9. Gavin Wieland

    This song gives me goosebumps. Really awesome tune.

  10. r s

    This whole album is inspired.
    Comprehension of harmony?
    Genius.
    Lost Horizon.

    And when there's breathing in your ear
    You put your faith in all you hear
    But just how deep those feelings go
    I have no way to know
    I'll never know

    If I was blind

    Pretending to care about me

    When all the time
    You're just wishing I'd fade away
    You just can't bring yourself to

    Say out loud the reasons why
    You won't admit you realize
    The promise you've been living by
    Is just an empty shell
    You'll come to bear it like a cross
    Then start to tear it like frayed gauze
    Though I'm ashamed to be afraid
    I just can't help myself
    Can't help myself
