Lyrics:

There's a lot I don't know, but I've known you for a while
And I know that it don't mean much to see you wear a smile
'Cause you could fool the best of them, when you were falling apart inside
You could choose to confess to them, but instead you'll continue to hide

But I hate say you're not an actor and your life's not a play
You're going to break down
If you don't find a way to tell the truth somehow
The stage is getting darker, so take your bow

It must have been something, someone, somewhere said,
'Cause you got some silly ideas stuck up inside your head
Got you thinking you've got something to prove, that life is something you either win or you lose
But I'm going to tell you now that that ain't true that the only one really missing out here is you

And I hate to say you're not an actor and your life's not a play
You're going to break down
If you don't find a way to tell the truth somehow
The stage is getting darker, so take your bow

Ain't it time, you quit your lying
'Cause there's no use in trying
To pretend that you don't get hurt

And it's alright, it's okay
We're all made of flesh and blood and we all know some sort of pain
You're not an actor and your life's not a play
Won't you listen to me now, won't you listen to me say
You're going to break down
If you don't find a way to tell the truth somehow
The stage is getting darker, so take your bow
