Keep on Pretending

Verse 1:

On the outside

She seems like a normal girl

On the outside

She seems like she could rule the world

On the outside

She seems like she's free

But on the inside

She's dying

Hook:

No one sees the torment in her eyes

No one sees how much she cries

She's wearing a mask to hide her tears

She's been fighting this pain for so many years

Chorus:

And she keeps on pretending

That everything's okay

She keeps on pretending

But no matter what she says

She's still wearing a mask

She keeps on pretending

That she's alive

But on the inside

She's already died

But no one sees beyond the mask

Verse 2:

She lives in a home

Full of deception and lies

At night all alone

Is the only time she gets to cry

She prays for an angel

One to take her away

So she can leave the danger

And finally be okay

Hook:

She thinks that if she dreams

Life won't be as it seems

So she holds her head high

And she looks towards the sky

Chorus:

And she keeps on pretending

That everything's okay

She keeps on pretending

But no matter what she says

She's still wearing a mask

She keeps on pretending

That she's alive

But on the inside

She's already died

But no one sees beyond the mask

Bridge:

She's gone through

Too many tears

For far too many years

She has so many fears

The end is coming near

Chorus:

I can't keep on pretending

Like everything's okay

I can't keep on pretending

And no matter what I say

I'm tired of wearing a mask

I can't keep on pretending

That I'm alive

Because the truth is

I'm dead inside

But you will never see beneath my mask
