Some days I can’t even get out of bed
So I lay there in the shadows with the voices in my head
And they torment me with memories and things I had to choose
Somehow it ended up no matter what it is I lose

But I put on my best smile and nobody can tell
I’m not as happy as I seem, in fact, I’m doing well
I stare myself down in the mirror and thought I’d at least try
To make it through another day I tell another lie

I’m alright…



That’s exactly what I’ll say if anybody asks
I’m alright; I’m okay with living life behind these masks
Nobody has to worry because I’m obviously faking
I’m permanently stuck in the moment before breaking

I’m a pile of emotions all cluttered on the floor
With so much weight attached I can’t hold it anymore
But I’ve learned to live a lie and nobody can tell
That I’m just about to fall apart, In fact, I’m doing well.
Never been better.

I hate to sound like everyone else, but this describes me a lot. More than not, this is how i feel. It's beautiful the way you put it into words

It's okay. It just means that others who feel that way know that there are others like them.

I feel this way myself from time to time. I find it very upsetting that people rarely notice, though--I can't tell if it's because they don't care or if I'm that good an actor. I'm kinda glad that I'm not alone in feeling this, though.

Yeah, sometimes I think I deserve an oscar for how well I seem to act. But it's alright. You're never really alone.
