Fake Happy

Album: After Laughter (2017)
  • I love making you believe
    What you get is what you see
    But I'm so fake happy
    I feel so fake happy
    And I bet everybody here
    Is just as insincere
    We're all so fake happy
    And I know fake happy

    I been doing a good job of makin' 'em think
    I'm quite alright
    But I hope I don't blink
    You see its easy when I'm stomping on a beat
    But no one sees me when I crawl back underneath

    If I smile with my teeth
    Bet you believe me
    If I smile with my teeth
    I think I believe me

    Oh please don't ask me how I've been
    Don't make me play pretend
    Oh no, oh what's the use
    Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too

    And if I go out tonight, dress up my fears
    You think I'll look alright with these mascara tears?
    See I'm gonna draw my lipstick wider than my mouth
    And if the lights are low they'll never see me frown

    If I smile with my teeth
    Bet you believe me
    If I smile with my teeth
    I think I believe me

    Oh please don't ask me how I've been
    Don't make me play pretend
    Oh no, oh oh what's the use?
    Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too

    I know I said that I was doing good and that I'm happy now
    Oh oh
    I should've known that when things are going good thats when I get knocked down

    Oh please, just don't ask me how I've been
    Don't make me play pretend
    Oh no, oh no
    Oh what's the use?
    Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too
    Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too Writer/s: Hayley Nichole Williams, Taylor York
