Lyrics

Look what you've done
Look what you've done
What do you have now?
Things that never come
Another year in a dead room
Is it time to come down?

Another crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing "I'm a pretender"
But you never were
You never were a contender
A contender

I heard your same old tune
Singing city sins like you were the first one
Gave up books for film
Gave up film for time
Now that you've got none

At the back of a crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing "I'm a pretender"

At the back of a crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing "I'm a pretender"

But you never were
You never were a contender
A contender
You never were a contender
You never were a contender

Testo

Guarda cos'hai fatto
Guarda cos'hai fatto
Cos'hai adesso?
Cose che non arrivano mai
Un altro anno in una stanza morta
È tempo di scendere?

Un'altra scena affollata
Hai visto i ragazzi in bianco cantare "I'm a pretender" (The Platters?)
Ma non lo sei mai stato
Non sei mai stato un contendente
Un contendente

Ho sentito la tua stessa vecchia melodia
Cantare i peccati della città come te era il primo
Ho dato libri per il cinema
Ho rinunciato al film per tempo
Ora che non ne hai nessuno

Sul retro di una scena affollata
Hai visto i ragazzi in bianco cantare "I'm a pretender"

Sul retro di una scena affollata
Hai visto i ragazzi in bianco cantare "I'm a pretender"

Ma non lo sei mai stato
Non sei mai stato un contendente
Un contendente
Non sei mai stato un contendente
Non sei mai stato un contendente
