Be a Hypocrit


I wear my heart on my sleeve

My whole entire sleeve

But sometimes, when you need

A shoulder to cry on

I wear a jacket of lies

To cover up my sadness

This is all madness


Sometimes, to be a good friend

You need to put your emotions away

Save them for another day

Sometimes, you have to lie

And put off exasperated sighs

Sometimes, to be a good friend

You have to be a hypocrit


We're always told to "practice what we preach"

Yeah, what we preach

But sometimes when you need

Comfort and laughter

I forget my own beliefs

And I shove away my heartache

Hope it doesn't wake


Each time I guide you to joy

I may feel like breaking down

But I'll never show it infront of you, boy

I'll help you laugh, steal away your frown


Sometimes, to be a good friend

You need to put your heart aside

Make up some farfetched lies

Sometimes, you need an excuse

For the truth would only confuse

Sometimes, to be a good friend

You have to be a hypocrit


When it's night for the both of us

I'll be your moonlight; you can trust me

I'll embrace the darkness with pride

To see your glowing face and sparkling eyes

When you can laugh again


Each time I guide you to joy

I may feel like breaking down

But I'll never show it infront of you, boy

I'll help you laugh, steal away your frown


Sometimes, to be a good friend

You need to put your emotions away

Save them for another day

Sometimes, you have to lie

And put off exasperated sighs

Sometimes, to be a good friend

You have to be a hypocrit


Sometimes, to be a good friend

You need to put your heart aside

Make up some farfetched lies

Sometimes, you need an excuse

For the truth would only confuse

Sometimes, to be a good friend

You have to be a hypocrit


Be a hypocrit

Yeah, for once, it's fine

Contradict yourself

Be a hypocrit


I wear my heart

On my torn sleeve
