Keep Walkin'

Please don't look at me like that
In fact, don't even look at all
Just leave me be
I need some time to think

Nothin against you
I know you mean no harm
But honestly I don't know what to do
And I don't want to take it out on you

So please just keep on walkin'
Like you don't see these fallin' tears
And please just keep talkin'
As if I'm not slowly fadin' away

I try my best to hide what's on the inside
With a big fake mask on the outside
That's painted with a smile
But it can't cover my eyes

I try to look away but I can't
I try to pretend but to no advance
I'm tryin to get my walls up
But instead I'm left here wide open

So please just keep listenin
Like you don't hear my voice
And please just keep lookin'
As if you see nothin' wrong

I know you that you know somethin's up
That somethin's wrong, you wanna help
But a part of me hopes you'll give up
Cuz the longer you stay, the more you'll get hurt
I just wanna save you from my pain
Please just go before my defenses push you away

So keep walkin'
Before you see my tears
Start runnin' now
Cuz I'm slowly

Fadin' away
