Pretend

I pretend to be strong
So no one will see me cry
But it seems as if they don't care
As inside, I slowly die
My whole life is a mask
Nothing's really true
But no one cares about my troubles
No one, it seems, but You.

When my world is crashing
And I am wondering why,
No one stops to check me
No one bats an eye
They don't want the burden
Of the pain I hold inside
As long as they're not troubled
They love the way I lie.

So I am on my knees now
And I am holding tight
To everything I still know
That won't change overnight
But the winds of life are blowing
Threaten to whisk me away
So please, God, hear my desperate pleas
Hold me another day
