It's a Lie

I've hidden behind a mask
It's easy to deny.
With a smiling face
And pretty white lies

I say I'm fine
They believe I'm okay
The pains eating me alive
But they pay me no mind.

I'm suppose to be strong,
Put on a brave face.
My strength is fading and
The pain won't fade.

Lord, do you hear my cries?
Do you see the broken hearts I'm surrounded by?
The pain I can't help heal.
Surrounded by a sea of sorrow pulling me down.

So I'll keep my brave face on.
Stay strong because it helps their broken hearts to keep on,
For their sakes I'll lie and say I'm fine.
But what about me?

Don't you hear my cries?
