Cover your eyes and look away,
pretend you did not see. 
Pretend you saw my mask,
and did not see the real me.

Just forget what you say,
pretend I am okay.
Pretend you didn't see it,
just turn and walk away.

Pretend that I am normal, 
but we both know I'm not.
And if someone asks you about me,
pretend that you forgot.

Pretend things are the same,
just do it for my sake.
Pretend I want to live,
even if I don't wake.

Lie for me and smile,
pretend everything is right.
Pretend that I am happy,
and that I am alright.

Pretend you did not see, 
and pretend everything's okay. 
Pretend I want to live,
and I want to find my way.
