Awkward's Lyrics Pages: Amy Studt - False Smiles

They kept a saying; you donít wanna go playing, with the big boys.
Just stick to the backyard; just stay in your mothers arms.
Did you expect me to believe all of the evil lies you whispered when the lights went out?
Thereís good in everyone, but you only taught me how to hate.
Iím trying hard just to hold my head up from the shadows
Thereís more dark than light in me
But you painted that, but you created that
So keep on walking by, donít turn around, just stop pretending that you care
For all the false smiles, thereís another dying child

Chorus:
Give me another taste,
Of what youíve got to give, I know that I can live life afraid
Take me, one last time
I wanna feel the pain; I wanna feel the shame all the way
(I want to feel ×4)

Iím realising how much that you can hide behind a pretty face
All the secrets that lie inside, jump out and scar leave without a trace
So I believe Iíll find salvation on the other side of the road
For all the false smiles, thereís another dying child

Chorus

Iíll keep on fighting, keep on writing all the things that you donít want to hear
Just because Iíll strike a home truth, of what you want to make disappear

Iíll never disappear

Chorus ×2

I want to feel ×4

A. Studt, F. Waltmann

These lyrics were transcribed from the Under The Thumb single by Klee.
