If I pretend that I'm okay,
Can you safely walk away?
Leave me in my own despair?
Hold on to what isn't there?
If I pretend I'm happy here,
Can you read my hidden fear?
Will you choose to love me soon?
Hold on to my heart's one tune?
If I pretend to smile for you,
Can you see my soul right through?
Read me like an open book?
Hold on to my one last look?
If I pretend to make this last,
Can you lift the spell you've cast?
Leave me in my own despair,
I don't need your help or care.
