Verse 1

How many more times will you have me shouting to a karaoke?

How many more times will you not listen to my words and just say okay?

How many more times will you make me sit down to write?

How many more times will I feel tempted to cut myself and end this fight?

Chorus

I don't wanna cry,

I don't even wanna scream.

I'm pretending to myself,

Until you force me to see that this isn't a dream.

Till then, I fake my happiness.

Plaster a smile on my face.

Let me sing, let me dance,

Let me laugh at every chance,

Let me talk and let me rhyme.

Tell me how many more times?

Verse 2

How many more times will I have to cry myself to sleep?

How many more times is it going to hurt so, so deep?

How many more times will you make my raw emotions surface?

How many more times will you reduce me to this mess?

Chorus

I don't wanna cry,

I don't even wanna scream.

I'm pretending to myself,

Until you force me to see that this isn't a dream.

Till then, I fake my happiness.

Plaster a smile on my face.

Let me sing, let me dance,

Let me laugh at every chance,

Let me talk and let me rhyme.

Tell me how many more times?

Bridge

Feeling strangely empty

Even with all the anger inside,

The painful wound's effervescence

How many more times will I take this ride?

Chorus

I don't wanna cry,

I don't even wanna scream.

I'm pretending to myself,

Until you force me to see that this isn't a dream.

Till then, I fake my happiness.

Plaster a smile on my face.

Let me sing, let me dance,

Let me laugh at every chance,

Let me talk and let me rhyme.

Tell me how many more times?
