Bring You Down

From the outside nothing looks out of place
I've got a superhero costume and a happy face
And if you ask you know what I'll say
“Everything is fine, it's great, I'm okay”

I'll throw a party for my fair-weather friends
Just don't look now there's a big, black cloud overhead
And if you ask you know what I'll say
“Everything is fine, it's great, I'm okay”

I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around at all
No I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around

I'll be taking comfort in strangers
Because the little lies we tell aren't really dangerous
You say “How ya doin” and I'm on trial
'Cause I've been caught red-handed in a stolen smile

I could be rude, I could be vague
I could be quiet
Or look you right in the face
As I lie, I say, “Everything is fine, it's great, I'm okay”

I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around at all
No I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around

I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around at all
No I don't want to bring you down
It's better you don't come around
