How Many Times?

How many times
Do I have to decieve
To wear this mask
Hide what others see

One too many
How many times
To hide my true self
From what others find

I want to stop
Lying day to day
How many times
How long ’till I fade

Time and time again
I tell them I’m fine
How long do I have
How many times.
