You're standing there (remember this moment)
Your gaze is piercing through us all (it's almost faded)
But what's unclear (we'll try to learn from it)
I'm under pressure and am ready to fall.

I left behind the very person who swore to stay.
The face you see is just the mask I chose to wear today.

Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
I'll hide my tears behind a smile so that's all you can see.
Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
I'll hide my tears behind a smile so that's all you can see.

Conversing now (sincerity's fighting)
Want to be everything you know (disguise is failing)
Don't wanna lie (reveal what I'm hiding)
But honesty the truth will show.

I left behind the very person who swore to stay.
The face you see is just the mask I chose to wear today.

Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
I'll hide my tears behind a smile so that's all you can see.
Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
I'll hide my tears behind a smile so that's all you can see.
Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
Don't wanna take the time to tell you what you see isn't me.
Don't wanna talk, don't wanna talk about it.
I'll hide my tears behind a smile so that's all you can see.

    General CommentI'm not positive but i think this song is about a break up and whoever is singing it is the one who has to pretend to be strong and pretend to be happy without the other, when clearly they are a mess. The other had swore to stay but for some reason or another things didn't work out like that.
