Lyrics

you're talking to me, but i don't hear a word
focusing on my breath and the blur in my eyes
trying to not cry

i know you don't know i'm holding back tears
what'd you expect, i've loved you for years
i'd feel stupid if i just let go
you'll never know

i hold it in, keep it in
just keep smiling
look away, not too long
that's the thing
cause otherwise you'd realize
that i'm breaking down

it's hard to be happy for you when she's the only one you see
it's hard for me biting my tongue when all that i know is you and me

it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy
it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy

everywhere you go, she's by your side
holding your hand, wish you were holding mine
i'll pretend that i'm fine

i hold it in, keep it in
just keep smiling
look away, not too long
that's the thing
cause otherwise you'd realize
that i'm breaking down

it's hard to be happy for you when she's the only one you see
it's hard for me biting my tongue when all that i know is you and me

it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy
it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy

i used to think when all was said and done
i would be the one
then she looks at you, i see in your eyes
colors like a sunrise

it's hard to be happy, happy, happy

it's hard to be happy for you when she's the only one you see
it's hard for me biting my tongue when all that i know is you and me

it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy
it's hard to be happy
it's hard to be happy, happy, happy
