Verse 1:
               C
Hey homecoming queen
           G
Why do you lie
               Em
When somebody's mean?
             D
Where do you hide?
          C
Do people assume
              G
You're always alright?
                Em
Been'so good at smiling
              D
Most of your life
 
Pre-Chorus:
     C                G
Look damn good in the dress
                    Em
Zipping up the mess
                  D
Dancing with your best foot forward
C
Does it get hard
G
To have to play the part?
Em              D
Nobody's feeling sorry for ya

C              G                          Em
But what if I told you the world wouldn't end
               D                         C
If you started showing what's under your skin
            G                      Em
What if you let 'em all in on the lie?

Even the homecoming queen cries

How's things at home?
                 Em
Still walking on eggshells
                   D
When that curtains closed
               C
Did your daddy teach you
           D
How to act tough?
                  Em
Or more like your momma?

Sweep it under the rug

Or does it weigh you down

Nobody's feeling sorry for ya

                 D                                  C
If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all
               G                     Em
Not everything pretty sparkles and shines
                D                   C
And even the homecoming queen cries
