Underneath This Smile Lyrics

by Hilary Duff

What I'm standing on is sinking in
And I don't have a clue how to get off of it
But when I look at you there is hope

It's like you see the sadness in my eyes
You read the blue between the lines
You could be the one to hold me when I wanna cry

Underneath this smile my world is slowly caving in
All the while I'm hanging on 'cause that is all I know
Could you be the one to save me
From every bad habit that has helped me dig this hole?
I've been hiding out for miles underneath this smile

I have walked this earth with broken bones
I've been keeping secrets under all these lights
But when you're around my defenses go

You don't let me run away from you
You don't let me twist and turn the truth
It feels as if I'm naked when you're standing in the room

Underneath this smile my world is slowly caving in
All the while I'm hanging on instead of letting go
Could you be the one to save me
From every bad habit that has helped me dig this hole?
I've been hiding out too long underneath this smile
Underneath this smile, oh, yeah

Underneath this smile my world is slowly caving in
All the while I'm hanging on instead of letting go
Could you be the one to save me
From every bad habit that has helped me dig this hole?

Underneath this smile
Could you be the one to save me
From every bad habit that has helped me dig this hole?
I've been hiding out for miles, underneath this, underneath this
Underneath this smile

What I'm standing on is sinking in
