I get up in the morning to start my day
I put on my fake smile and pretend I'm okay
I chat with my friends and just laugh along 
I hold back my tears and pretend to be strong
I may struggle but i will continue to fight
I giggle and grin like i wasn't crying last night
I force myself to laugh and join in with the cheers
I want to turn off the lights and drown in my tears
I sit quiet and listen to the words that are spoken
I make sure no one sees that i am so broken 
I finally let go and tears roll down my face
I listen for the words "What's wrong with Grace?"
But no one says anything the all just carry on 
I look for my friends but i see they're all gone
