Pretending

You’re alone. It’s what you’ve always been                  
There’s nothing else that you have seen                      
You pretend to be strong                                                                
And try to go on                                                                                

You’re proud and you don’t want to admit
That it’s the ground that you just hit
You pretend to be strong
But you (just) can’t go on

While your face remains a mask of steel     
Your soul doesn’t know how to feel
The sadness seems to crush your heart
And piece by piece you fall apart

Still you’re fighting for your pride
But no one’s there right at your side
You pretend to be alright
But inside you lost the fight

Others tell you to be glad
For opportunities they never had
They don’t get what it does to you
They never walked in your shoe

While your face remains a mask of steel
Your soul doesn’t know how to feel
The sadness seems to crush your heart
And piece by piece you fall apart

People still want to cheer you up
Even though you asked them to stop
You don’t want to hurt them but you can’t stand
Seeing them all walking hand in hand

It hurts and it gets harder to hide
That you need somebody at your side
But you don’t dare to admit your fall
So once again, you swallow it all

While your face remains a mask of steel
Your soul doesn’t know how to feel
The sadness seems to crush your heart
And piece by piece you fall apart

In the end you cannot fight anymore                            
Your will is crushed, your heart is sore
