Sometimes i sit at home and wonder how it be if he had loved me truely loved me yes, i learned
Awhile ago that kind of thing it never happens for me, and so i go around and just pretend love
Is not for me i play the circus clown around my friends make them laugh and they wont see that
U never let them see u sweat don't want them to think the pain runs deep, Lord know it's killing me

[Chorus:]
So i put on my make up put a smile on my face and if anyone ask me everything is ok im
Laughing cuz no one knows the joke is on me cuz im dyin inside with my pride and a smile on my
Face...on my face singing, la la la, la la, lalala, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la la
Laaaa

Sometimes i sit at home by the phone hopin he might call me but he don't call me but then i
Realize dreams come true aren't for girls like me not like me, and so i go around with my head
Up like it aint no thing and when the boys around with all my friends im into other things cuz
U never let them see u sweat don't want them to think the pain runs deep, lord knows it's killing
Me

[Chorus:]
So i put on my make up put a smile on my face and if anyone ask me everything is ok im
Laughing cuz no one knows the joke is on me cuz im dyin inside with my pride and a smile on my
Face...on my face oooh

Its not easy (thing to do) sometimes it's hard to (face the truth) it's not the life that i
Would choose but what else can i do if he don't love me no if he don't want me im not about to
Sit around let myself go (gooooo)

[Chorus:]
So i put on my make up put a smile on my face and if anyone ask me everything is ok im
Laughing cuz no one knows the joke is on me cuz im dyin inside with my pride and a smile on my
Face...on my face singing, la la la, la la, lalala, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la la
Laaaa I'll keep singing la la la la la, lalala, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la la
Laaaa I'll keep singing la la la, la la, lalala, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la la
Laaaa I'll keep singing la la la-la la la, lalala, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la, la la la
Laaaa

    I was in love with this guy madly in love with him,we were so good together we thought nothing can come between us but the came a time when we have to face reality he loved his career more than our relationship,so i dicided to let him go if though am pretending that am fine we still talk on the phone but deep inside i still love him.

    impression management takes place...hmmm sad song.. the song tells us that some people dont want to hurt the pipol he/she loves, dont want to be hurt and pretend they're not hurt..haiz^^

    we've been together for 14 months...but he left me...he said he wanted more time for himself. more time to think...
    am i that possessive of him?
    i hurts too much knowing that i've already done everything to make him stay but he chose to be with 'himself' first...
    i told him i'd wait..wait... until he'll be ready again...
    NOW...i'm pretending.. pretending that i'm all right..
    we still see each other...
    we still SMILE together...
    but the fact is, deep inside, it hurts me more...
    i'm still waiting...

    I was with this guy for three years...and within those years, he kept saying that he'll change and he'll do whatever it takes to turn things better.

    But as time went by, I had to choose pride for love. I chose to move on and I am happier now. Letting go may sound so simple but yet it was tough because I was REALLY in love with this guy but I knew I do not deserve him for not giving me due respect nor he deserved me for doubting his love.

    I know I was right - there was no excuse for what he did to me, and there was no excuse for why I continued to let it happen. And although he did try to turn things better, there was nothing that could make our relationship any better but to move on.

    We remain friends in spite of our separation and we are better off as friends...for now.
