I've got a smile
That I put on
When I'm not at home
When I'm not alone

But it is so hard
To make that smile
'Cause I know I'll be at home
And alone in a while
And if I look in a mirror
I see my eyes start to tear
I can't help but cry
Since you said goodbye

I've got to hide
Whhat I'm feelin' inside
Can't let them see
How you're hurtin' me

So I guess that's what I'll do
Won't let them see through
Won't let them know
That you could hurt me so

I've got a laugh
That I put on
When I'm not at home
When I'm not alone

But it is so hard
To fake that laugh
When my insides are cryin'
And my heart's torn in half
And all the music I hear
And things I valued so dear
Make me feel so blue
They all remind me of you

(Now) What can I do
(Now) That our love is through
And my purpose is gone
Still I got to live on
I guess that's what I'll do
I won't let them see through
I won't let them know
That you could hurt me so
