I love making you believe
What you get is what you see
But I’m so fake happy
And I bet everybody here
Is just as insincere
We’re all so fake happy
And I know fake happy
I been doin’ a good job
Of makin’ em think
I’m quite alright
Better hope i don’t blink
You see it’s easy when I’m stompin’ on a beat
But no one sees me when I crawl back underneath
If I smile with my teeth
Bet you believe me
If I smile with my teeth
I think I believe me
Oh please
Don’t ask me how I’ve been
Don’t make me play pretend
Oh no, oh what’s the use?
Oh please
I bet everybody here is fake happy too
And if I go out tonight
Dress up my fears
You think I look alright with these
Mascara tears
See I’m gonna draw up my lipstick wider than my mouth
And if the lights are low they’ll never see me frown
I know I said that I was doing good
And that I’m happy now
I shoulda known when things were going good
That’s when I’d get knocked down

    I was so transfixed on her adorable dancing and cute butt but honestly the bit with Hayley and the glitter tears at the end made me tear up that was so raw and emotive

    I fall in love with this song for the second time.

    *This is what Hayley Said about the video:*

    “I walked around forever and a day, wearing sequins and looking like a mermaid superhero. i danced with strangers, got yelled at by a construction worker, hugged a time traveler… all the while looking p damn carefree. 
    in my mind, i was anxious and really self-conscious. we didn’t even write the treatment around that, it just was the reality of filming Fake Happy on the streets of one of the busiest cities in the world. the only moment that any underlying emotion (other than “happy”) is apparent is at the very end….
    @zacfarro directed the video. he conceptualized it and insisted we shoot it on film. very proud of him. proud of me for not giving a shit that im the only one in this video. we made another something we love for the band we grew up in. *I love Paramore* ”

    — Hayley Williams

    favorite song off the album tbh

    • lemon lemon says:

      noodle tea same, along with idle worship

    • Aaron Cat says:

      It’s the best song off the album by far, it reminds me of the video game Seiken Densetsu 3, the opening sounds synth sounds like the games music.

    • rlyehdate says:

      What about No Friend? I just hate that the voice sounds very low but it’s great. To be honest, this album is very great: the first time I heard it I thought it was very happy, very pink, but once you think about the lyrics you understand that the happy vibe is just a mask for very deep songs.

  18. MonkeyFlop says:

    She is so hot! Marry me and we can be Fake Happy together!
