               G
Hey homecoming queen
           D
Why do you lie

When somebody's mean?

Where do you hide?

You're always alright?

Look damn good in the dress
                    Bm
Zipping up the mess
                  A
Dancing with your best foot forward

Does it get hard

To have to play the part?

If you started showing what's under your skin
            D                      Bm
What if you let 'em all in on the lie?

Still walking on eggshells
                   A
When that curtains closed
               G
Did your daddy teach you
           A
How to act tough?

Sweep it under the rug

If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all
