On The Surface Lyrics

On the surface I’m alright
On the outside I know i’ll never have to fight it
I just hide it, Hmmm-mmm
On the surface, I’m okay
I was broke but I found a way to stop the bleeding
Now I’m healing

When it all hurt and nothing was easy
Where were you back then
I was so lost under the make-up
I won’t go there again

Cause I’m gonna stay here
This time I won’t break down
Not gonna lay here
I’m gonna make me proud
I’m not going in under my skin
Cause it hurts less on the surface

Am I talking to a stranger
If you knew how many times
I’ve tried to reach you
Cause I needed you

And when it all hurt and nothing was easy
Where were you back then
I was so lost under the make-up
I won’t go there again

Cause I’m gonna stay here
This time I won’t break down
Not gonna lay here
I’m gonna make me proud
I’m not going in under my skin
Cause it hurts less on the surface

(Hey, hey, oh-woah, hey hey)
Hmmm-mmmm
(Hey, hey, oh-woah, hey hey)
Ooh-ooh
(Hey, hey, oh-woah, hey hey)
Yeah-eah

Cause I’m gonna stay here
This time I won’t break down
Not gonna lay here
I’m gonna make me proud
I’m not going in under my skin
Cause it hurts less on the surface

I’m gonna stay here
This time I won’t break down
Not gonna lay here
I’m gonna make me proud
I’m not going in under my skin
Cause it hurts less on the surface

(Hey, hey, oh-woah, hey hey)
