Pretend

Pretend
By: IzaDonna

Do you realize the lonely girl
With the fake smile on her face?
No one would have ever thought
She ever felt out of place
Using jokes to deal with pain
Pushing feelings deep down below
No one ever realized she needed help
The realization was not at first known

Chrous
Somebody please help her
Make her open up at last
Her downward spiral is spinning fast
Make her finally see
That all her troubles can be set free
She doesn't have to pretend

They waited to long to help
As she slipped away from light
Trying to bring her back
Bring her back to this life
The light flooded back in
As she breathed life once again
A chance to start anew
A chance to make amends

Chrous

So you might think shes weak
But shes survived more than you know
So don't be so quick to judge
When she reaches her all time low
If you would have cared from the start
Then maybe she wouldn't have felt so alone
Cause then her smile would be sincere
And her happiness would be shown

Chorus X2

No more pretending
