Since Paramore’s new album launched, I’ve been digging to this song and I feel like it talks about the past several years of my life. Well, actually, it made me realize that been faking happy. It’s dark, but I know that it’s true. And at least through this song, I can say that even for once, I’ve been true with my feelings; I acknowledge how really sad I am.

I think this is the theme song of my life.

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

So I’ve been doing a good job of makin’ them think
I’m quite alright
But I hope I don’t blink
You see it’s 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
I should’ve known when things are going good that’s 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
