You don’t know anything about me, I don’t give a damn
That is my chance to show you who I really am
I will not tell you that I’m full of fucking problem
I’m sure I’ll find something to say shaking your hand

I’m happy to be here
And I am of good cheer
I’m everything but shy
But these are all lies

When do I understand that no one cares about the real truth of my mind?
When do I understand my paranoias make seem unkind?
I don’t need to feed this hell
But what else can I do? I’m still talking about myself

It’s too hard to pretend
Because I don’t feel glad
I just want to be quiet
This is not a lie

Oh nobody loves you as nobody loves me
But there’s no feeling
I carry on wondering when I learn to lie

If I say I’m fine
Will everything start shining?
Will I believe I’m kind
Will you really be mine?
So what’s a lie?
