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
Cause I can see the sadness steal our eyes
You need to read between the lines
You could be the one to hold me when I want to 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 down for miles
Underneath this smile, yeah

I have walked this Earth with broken bones
I've been keeping secrets under all these lies
But when you're around my defenses go
And 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 while 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 down for miles
Underneath this smile, oh hey
Underneath this smile, yeah, oh yeah, hey

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, oh

Oh, could you be the one to save me
From every bad habit that has helped me dig this hole I've been hiding down for miles
Underneath this, underneath this
Underneath this smile, oh
What I'm standing on is sinking in
