These words of love
So hard for me to find
How can I change my mind
If you can only lie?
These shattered dreams
I try to build again
But looks could kill again
And I'm too young to die

Smiling faces all around us
You don't want to make a scene
Not here, not now
And I don't want to cry

We drink the wine
Like we were really friends
But can our sadness end
And words turn into play?
We dress so fine
And step out on the town
And friends may gather round
But soon will turn away

Smiling faces all around us
You don't want to make a scene
Not here, not now
And I don't want to cry

Smiling faces all around us
You don't want to make a scene
Not here, not now
And I don't want to cry
