I act like I don’t miss you
As if your not every other thought
That crosses my mind
Like I could just stop thinking about you
And everything would be okay again

I act like I don’t miss you
I put on a smile
And face the crowd
Knowing that I can wait until im home and alone to cry
Because I am alone
Or at least that’s how I constantly feel now
Now that I don’t have you

I act like I don’t miss you
I don’t know why I still do
Its been over two weeks now
It wasn’t like this in the beginning,
But the feelings are getting worse
With every passing day

I act like I don’t miss you
But I am constantly leaning on my friends
Because they don’t know it,
But they are the only things
That keep me from falling apart

I act like I don’t miss you
But I am constantly thinking about you
Wondering if I ever cross your mind
Or if you ever miss me too.
I don’t like it, but I cant help it

I act like I don’t miss you
But when I was with you,
I was constantly happy.
I was always smiling, and laughing.
But you left
And took that with you

I act like I don’t miss you
I am still smiling a lot,
And laughing too much
But now its to cover up my true feelings
Instead of just another way of showing them

I act like I don’t miss you
But every time something makes me think of you
I feel yet another sudden wave of sadness
When I think of what we used to be
Or what we could have been

I act like I don’t miss you
But every time I look at that red Christmas sweater
In my closet
It reminds me of that night
Not so long ago
When we were so happy
And everything seemed right
