Swore I was gonna tell em the truth
That was til everybody started asking 'bout you
And I didn't know what to say
Came up with some lame excuse
Why you were gone
Said you were gonna come later on
Planted a smile on my face
Like everything was okay

I was hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

And then one of your friends
Came up and gave me a hug and asked me how we've been
I smiled and said we're better than we've ever been
Well I don't know why I had to lie
Guess I didn't wanna tell er that you said goodbye
I couldn't even look er in the eye
So I kept on...

Hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

Everybody thinkin I'm feelin good
Everybody thinkin I'm havin a real good time
Don't know the truth about you and I

So I'm hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see I'm dying inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

Life of the party
Life of the party
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

Swear I was gonna tell em the truth
But I didn't know what to say
