Hey homecoming queen Why do you lie When somebody's mean? Where do you hide? Do people assume You're always alright? Been so good at smiling Most of your life
Look damn good in the dress Zipping up the mess Dancing with your best foot forward Does it get hard To have to play the part? Nobody's feeling sorry for ya
But what if I told you the world wouldn't end If you started showing what's under your skin What if you let 'em all in on the lie? Even the homecoming queen cries
Hey homecoming queen How's things at home? Still walking on eggshells When that curtain's closed Did your daddy teach you How to act tough? Or more like your momma? Sweep it under the rug
Look damn good in the dress Zipping up the mess Dancing with your best foot forward Did you want the crown Or does it weigh you down Nobody's feeling sorry for ya
What if I told you the world wouldn't end If you started showing what's under your skin? What if you let 'em all in on the lie? Even the homecoming queen cries Yeah, what if I told you the sky wouldn't fall? If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all Not everything pretty sparkles and shines And even the homecoming queen cries Oh yeah Even the homecoming queen cries
Hey homecoming queen Why do you lie? When somebody's mean Where do you hide?

ZoeyI love this song and now know why it was wrote out new emotion on it
Giada from Florida I really love this song it personally relates to me because I have had so much happen to me in my life and because I’m considered one of the pretty girls where I live and go to school I am always expected to be perfect and happy and just always smiling and being my best self, but nobody knows what’s really going on inside. I have always been way too scared to show my true self and show emotion because I felt like it would show me as weak and I didn’t want that. The first time I heard this song I was crying because it had me thinking about all of my downfalls and everything that has happened to me in my life, then I kept listening to it and I realized that I can’t hide forever and it’s okay to show some emotion here and there when I need to and this song has really helped me through a lot. Kelsea is my idol always and forever and I don’t think anything can change that. Thank you so much for writing this song, I’m sure it has helped many more people out there than just me!
Chelsea from New Jerseythis song makes me cry every time i listen to it, but i love it so much. i never ever went to my homecomings because i barely had friends and i didn’t wanna go and be by myself. i was always pretty much a loner all my life i barely talked much so when i listen to this song it makes me tear up. but i love it so much!
