Sacrificial Happiness

You tell me you had a bad day,
And I forget about everything I was gonna say,
‘Cause my friends, they always come first,
And I can’t think of anything worse,
Than seeing them hurt.

I put away my thoughts of my bad day,
And tell you everything’s okay,
Because I don’t wanna worry you with my problems,
That are nothing compared to yours.

I’ve become a pro at faking a smile,
Forcing a laugh that sounds so real,
While I’m dying inside.
‘Cause I’m not here for you to pity,
Don’t want your meaningless apologies,
I just want to see you happy.

I’ve gotten tired of always faking that smile,
But I still do it for you.
Yeah, I know it hurts to see me upset,
And I don’t wanna put you through that.
And no matter how bad I want to cry,
It’s always something I can seem to hide.

I’ve become a pro at faking a smile,
Forcing a laugh that sounds so real,
While I’m dying inside.
‘Cause I’m not here for you to pity,
Don’t want your meaningless apologies,
I just want to see you happy.

Yeah there’s nothing I can’t smile through,
And I don’t wanna cry in front of you,
Don’t wanna let you know that I’m not perfect,
Don’t wanna let you see the real me.

Because I’ve become a pro at faking a smile,
Forcing a laugh that sounds so real,
While I’m dying inside.
‘Cause I’m not here for you to pity,
Don’t want your meaningless apologies,
I just want to see you happy.

Yeah, don’t worry about me,
I just wanna see you happy.
