Real Friends – Smiling On The Surface lyrics

[Verse 1]
Am I telling myself the truth?
I’m used to pretending to be strong and clueless
Am I doing this right by you?
I seem to be coming off as wrong and ruthless

[Pre-Chorus]
Am I telling myself the truth about what I don’t know?
It makes me lose my self-control
I’m staring through the eyes of someone else

[Chorus]
So I’ll keep on smiling on the surface
Hiding my nerves behind the curtain
I’m caught up in an empty room
Filled with second thoughts and gloom

[Verse 2]
Am I changing my mind again?
All this indecision makes me shift my focus
Is the tension my only friend?
Anxiety holds my hand when life gets hopeless

[Pre-Chorus]
Am I telling myself the truth about what I don’t know?
It makes me lose my self-control
I’m staring through the eyes of someone else

[Chorus]
So I’ll keep on smiling on the surface
Hiding my nerves behind the curtain
I’m caught up in an empty room
Filled with second thoughts and gloom

[Bridge]
Am I telling myself the truth about my self-esteem and how others place their worth in me?
I’m staring through the eyes of someone else
Am I telling myself the truth?

[Chorus]
So I’ll keep on smiling on the surface
Hiding my nerves behind the curtain
I’m caught up in an empty room
Filled with second thoughts and gloom

[Outro]
Yeah, I'll keep on smiling on the surface
(Am I telling myself the truth?)
