James Bay – Best Fake Smile lyrics
No you don't have to wear your best fake smile
Don't have to stand there and burn inside, oh oh oh
If you don't like it

She's working late and making eyes at the door
She's sick of everybody up on her floor
She wants the sun in her eyes but all she gets is ignored
She used to put it out and get it all back
But now she's slipping, trying to carry the act
She's sweating under the lights, now she's beginning to crack

Now you don't have to wear your best fake smile
Don't have to stand there and burn inside, oh oh oh
If you don't like it
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend
Nobody needs a best fake friend, oh oh oh
Don't hide it

No hesitation now, she gets up and walks
She thinks of all the pain and pride that it cost
She empties all the tip jars, it won't get back what she lost
Outside the window with two fingers to show
She lifts her head up just to blow out the smoke
She doesn't have to look back to know where she's got to go

No you don't have to wear your best fake smile
Don't have to stand there and burn inside, oh oh oh
If you don't like it
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend
Nobody needs a best fake friend, oh oh oh
Don't hide it

If you don't bleed it
You don't need it anymore
If you don't need it
Get up and leave it on the floor
No more believing
Like it's a voice you can't ignore
If you don't need it,
You don't need it, no

And you don't have to wear your best fake smile
Don't have to stand there and burn inside, oh oh oh
If you don't like it
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend
Nobody needs a best fake friend, oh oh oh
Don't hide it

No you don't have to wear your best fake smile
Don't have to stand there and burn inside, oh oh oh
If you don't like it, oh oh oh
No, if you don't like it
