Pretend

Having thoughts of doubt

Looking for a way out

I didn't know people could be so cruel

It's okay, times are tough and

We learn to grow up fast

Days like this where we don't look before we fall

The tears I cry

Show me that even the scars you can't see are always there.

The moment I try

To smile it's gone in a flash

And it doesn't seem fair

I'm swallowing my pride

Saying nothing for the pain that's been denied

We can pretend it never happened

We can pretend like every day

isn't filled with the words you say

Then I can pretend like I don't hear.
