People say I'm the life of a party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I maybe laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears, I need you

When you're gone if you see me with another girl
Acting like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute, she's just a substitute, girl
'Cause you're the permanent one

So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears, no, no baby

Outside, I've been masquerading
Outside, my hope is fading
Outside, since you put me down
My smile is my make up
I wear since my break up with you

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I maybe laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

Since you're gone if you see me with another girl
Actin' like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute, she's just a substitute
You're the permanent one

People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I maybe laughin' loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue

Since you're gone if you see me with another girl
Actin' like I'm havin' fun
Although she may be cute, she's just a substitute
You're the permanent one
