Breathe In, Breathe Out

Breathe in, Breathe out
Be careful, girl, keep your wits about you
I know you’re hurting, that’s obvious
But you can’t let them see, don’t let them know

Breathe in, Breathe out
Steady now, keep that smile on your face
They’re all expecting the best out of you
Keep dancing their dance with all of your grace

Breathe in, Breathe out
You’re killing it now, just keep on going
It’s fine, my dear, it’s going to be okay
They’ll watch, they’ll stare, but never be knowing

Breathe in, Breathe out
One more step, make sure you twirl on their cue
You’ve pulled it off, your charade paid off
Your facade is thick, they’ll never see through

Breathe in, Breathe out
Your dance is done, and you smile as they pass by
They’re all gone now, lovely, and as you fall to the ground
You feel the dam inside you burst, it’s safe now to cry
