Poker Face


I feel like absolute hell because I can't talk to you.

I want to just die, I don't think I'll make it through.

But I have to carry on with my life the best that I can.

Pretend I'm not hurting, pretend I'm not such a broken man.

I'd do anything for just a minute of your embrace.

But instead I have to go through life with this poker face.

I'm holding my emotions inside so I don't cry.

I'm trying to look like everything's okay, but that's such a lie.

I'm trying real hard to refrain from punching a wall.

I'm trying to look like I did before my life took this fall.

I'm trying to deal with these feelings I need to erase.

And I'm trying to go through life with this poker face.

I love you so much you're all I can think about.

Now my head's so messed up, I can't figure anything out.

But I still have to work, and still have to be a dad.

I still have to live, even though I feel so damn bad.

Without you around I'm a total basket case.

And I have to go through life with this poker face.

You're everything I've ever wanted and so much more.

You are the one woman that I truly adore.

Without you, my life just isn't right at all.

So I'm sitting here staring at the phone, praying you'll call.

Without you around I feel like everything's out of place.

But I have to go through life with this poker face.
