I am painting my nights with happy lies 

Relishing in my distorted sense of reality 

Grasping onto a version of my life

That was painted and created as a means of escape 

Escape from the reality 

Escape from what’s real

Created from the lies that I’ve told myself 

I’m happy 

I’m fine 

Painted to make my days and nights seem joyful 

Painted with happy lies I tell myself 

So I don’t notice how truly sad I am 

Painted with happy lies 

So that anyone looking in 

Will see this fabricated happy version that’s been created for all to see


I am painting my nights with happy lies 

In order to hide the sad truths
