Break break down,
Steady breakin' me on down,
Break break down, steady breakin' me on down.
You called yesterday to basically say
But that you're just not in love
To be feeling similarly
To just walk away from the one thing

Nonchalant about it
I'm fine without you
Underneath a disguise of a smile
Friends ask me how I feel
'Cause I don't want to reveal
So I wear my disguise
And turn down all the lights

When somebody you're so devoted to
And it seems they haven't got a clue
Do you cling to your pride
Do you lash out and say "How dare you leave this way?"

Nonchalant about it
I'm fine without you
Underneath the disguise of a smile
Friends ask me how I feel
'Cause I don't want to reveal
So I wear my disguise
And turn down all the lights

Only if you let it
Tryin' to break me down

Taking me around
I think I better go and get out

Hoping for the sun but it looks like rain (Rain, rain, rain)

But nevertheless Krayzie won't fall

Nonchalant about it
I'm fine without you
Underneath the guise of a smile
Friends ask me how I feel
'Cause I don't want to reveal
So I wear my disguise
And turn down all the lights

Nonchalant about it
I'm fine without you
Underneath the guise of a smile
Friends ask me how I feel
'Cause I don't want to reveal
So I wear my disguise
And turn down all the lights

Nonchalant about it
I'm fine without you
Underneath the guise of a smile
Friends ask me how I feel
'Cause I don't want to reveal
So I wear my disguise
And turn down all the lights
