Pretend

Feign a smile so they won't know,

What you think or how you feel

Don't let them get beyond your walls

You erected to keep your pain concealed

Pretend you are happy, again today

Don't let them know you're hurting

Just lock away the sadness you feel

When their perfect lives you're disconcerting

Apply that fa├žade just one more day

So carefully that they cannot see

The real person that you are inside

That 's dying just to break free
