Track #5 off After Laughter 2017 by Paramore

“I Hate phoniness. It’s not fun to be around, it’s not fun to do yourself. But then there are these moments in your life where you’re professional and you have to have grace with yourself, you have to have grave with other people and work hard, but it’s that self-preservation thing.” Hayley Williams

Song lyrics: Paramore – Fake Happy

I love making you believe
What you get is what you see
But I’m so fake happy
I feel so fake happy
And I bet everybody here
Is just as insincere
We’re all so fake happy
And I know fake happy

I been doing a good job of makin’ ’em think
I’m quite alright
But I hope I don’t blink
You see its easy when I’m stomping on a beat
But no one sees me when I crawl back underneath

If I smile with my teeth
Bet you believe me
If I smile with my teeth
I think I believe me

Oh please don’t ask me how I’ve been
Don’t make me play pretend
Oh no, oh what’s the use
Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too

And if I go out tonight, dress up my fears
You think I’ll look alright with these mascara tears?
See I’m gonna draw my lipstick wider than my mouth
And if the lights are low they’ll never see me frown

If I smile with my teeth
Bet you believe me
If I smile with my teeth
I think I believe me

Oh please don’t ask me how I’ve been
Don’t make me play pretend
Oh no, oh oh what’s the use?
Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too

I know I said that I was doing good and that I’m happy now
Oh oh
I should’ve known that when things are going good thats when I get knocked down

Oh please, just don’t ask me how I’ve been
Don’t make me play pretend
Oh no, oh no
Oh what’s the use?
Oh please, I bet everybody here is fake happy too
Oh please I bet everybody here is fake happy too
