  • Swore I was gonna tell em the truth
    That was til everybody started asking 'bout you
    And I didn't know what to say
    Came up with some lame excuse
    Why you were gone
    Said you were gonna come later on
    Planted a smile on my face
    Like everything was okay

    I was hanging around, walk in the crowd
    Everybody singing along to my songs
    Taking my shots, throwing them back
    Acting like you ain't gone
    But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
    And I ain't got nobody
    I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
    So I guess I'll be the life
    Life of the party

    And then one of your friends
    Came up and gave me a hug and asked me how we've been
    I smiled and said we're better than we've ever been
    Well I don't know why I had to lie
    Guess I didn't wanna tell er that you said goodbye
    I couldn't even look er in the eye
    So I kept on...

    Hanging around, walk in the crowd
    Everybody singing along to my songs
    Taking my shots, throwing them back
    Acting like you ain't gone
    But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
    And I ain't got nobody
    I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
    So I guess I'll be the life
    Life of the party

    Everybody thinkin I'm feelin good
    Everybody thinkin I'm havin a real good time
    Don't know the truth about you and I

    So I'm hanging around, walk in the crowd
    Everybody singing along to my songs
    Taking my shots, throwing them back
    Acting like you ain't gone
    But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
    And I ain't got nobody
    I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
    So I guess I'll be the life
    Life of the party

    Life of the party
    Life of the party
    So I guess I'll be the life
    Life of the party

    Swear I was gonna tell em the truth
    But I didn't know what to say Writer/s: ASHLEY GORLEY, CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL DE STEFANO, DALLAS DAVIDSON
