Everything's Fine

I love you

And you tell me

You love me

Too

And I know you do

I accept it

I know you do

In your heart of hearts

But the truth

You can’t take it anymore

You lie

Say you can

But I know

You can’t

So the next time

You ask how I am

I’ll lie

I’ll keep your world together

Not tell you mine is falling apart

Because

Whenever I tell you the truth

Whenever I tell you straight

Your anger

Your despair

It tears me apart

And you see

I’m running out of glue

To keep me together

So I’ll shut my mouth

Mute this living hell

Snap a smile on

And convince you

Everything’s fine.

The End
