The title makes it a little obvious, doesn't it? No? Well, this one's taken from my feelings as of lately, so pardon if it's not your cup of tea.

Standing outside the crowding

Watching my worst fears dancing around

Fighting to remain above the water

I'm unsure of how much longer

I can make it through

And keep my distance,

Away from you.

But you just don't know

That my life is an act

This whole thing is a show

But the protaganist it lacks.

There's no one willing to stay,

So I hope that I

Can make it through the day.

Painting a smile on my face

Hiding my secrets,

gone without a trace.

Everyone thinks they know the real me

But there's way more

Than the eye can see.

So what can I do but go on?

All I can do is pretend,

Even though it's so wrong...

I know in my heart

That this will be my end.

But you just don't know

that my life is an act

This whole thing is a show

Though a protaganist it lacks.

And there's no one willing to stay,

So I hope that I

Can make it through the day.

No one here can comprehend

Something that isn't already a trend

And the only thing they care about at all

Is seeing how far

They can make someone fall....

You just don't know

That my life is an act

The whole thing is a show

But a protaganist it lacks,

There's no one willing to stay,

So by god I've got to hope and pray,

Yeah there's no one willing to stay,

But I've got to make it through today.
