Behind a painted smile
(Hunter & Verdi) featured on So far so good (The best of) Mathilde Santing

Whenever you’re near I hide my tears,
behind a painted smile.
You can’t imagine the tears and sorrow,
behind a painted smile.

My life’s a masquerade, a world of let’s pretend,
dear since you took your love, pretending never ends,
dear but I can’t let you know,
that I still need you so, no.

(Darling I hide the tears that I cry).
Whenever you’re near I hide my tears,
behind a painted smile.
You can’t imagine the tears and sorrow,
behind a painted smile

I can’t let you se, all the tears I’m crying.
You would pity me, that would be like dying.
If I can’t have your love,
I don’t need your sympathy.

My life is a masquerade since you took our love away.

I just can’t let you see. how much you hurting me.
