I wake up and put on a mask to pretend
I walk around with a fake smile
I say what you want to hear
I try to act like I really care
I am pulling at heart strings that aren’t there
I try to seem complicated
I really am simple
I don’t care
I don’t want to care
I want to sleep
I want to do nothing
I won’t stop talking about myself
I don’t care about myself I care about you but somehow some way you make me care
I don’t want to
So tell me about
Yes you no more I’s
Only you say what you think
Tell me about your mask
I don’t want to care about me
Let me care about you
Ummm yeah
Hi if you’re actually reading this
