Fake a smile

Fake a smile, force a laugh. Every breath I take makes me feel so broken. Hide the pain, wipe the tears. I'm trying to pretend it won't happen again. Swin in thoughts, drown is secrects. Some things are better left unsaid. Stay up late, don't get caught. No one will hear you ball. Fake a smile, Force a laugh. Is it something I said or didn't say this time. Hide the pain, wipe the tears. Don't know were I cross the line. Swim in thoughts, Drown in secrets. I'm afraid I really do need to talk. Stay up late, don't get caught. No one ever saw it coming.
