“Master Pretender” by First Aid Kit

I always believed that I was free, that I had some sense of integrity that would rise above whatever tried to change me.

Never thought that I was weak
Always thought I could get hurt pretty bad
Still get up on my own two feet

I always believed that I was free
That I had some sense of integrity
That would rise above whatever tried to change me

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

Oh, I’m a master pretender

I always knew that I was young
But with a head held high and a sharp tongue
I could fool almost anyone

I never expected to be struck
By the fatal hands of fortune or by sheer bad luck
Now we won’t change
And memories just rearrange
And fall into place
So I’m back again

Oh, I’m a master pretender

All the streets of New York City sure look pretty from way up here. And I was headed home, just felt more alone the further I’d go.

But I’ll stick around

I’ll be your master defender
Yeah, I’ll stick around
I’ll be your master defender

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
