(Krayzie)
F#5      G#5           A5
          Break break down,
                           F#5
Steady breakin me on down,
G#5              A5
break break down
Steady breakin me on down, (4x)

(Mariah)
F#5                G#5
You called yesterday
   A5
to basicallly say
         F#5
That you care for me,
G#5             A5
But that you're just not in love
  F#5           G#5
Immediately I pretended
              A5
To be feeling similarly
                              F#5
And led you to believe it was     o.k
   G#5                    A5
To just walk away from the      one thing

That's unyielding and sacred to me

(chorus)
F#5
    Well I guess I'm trying to be
G#5
    Nonchalant about it
A5
    And I'm going to extremes to prove
I'm fine without you
F#5               G#5                      A5
    But in reality I'm slowly losing my mind

Underneath a disguise of a smile
Gradually I'm dying inside
F#5
    Friends ask me how I feel
G#5
    And I lie convincingly
A5
    Cause I don't want to reveal
The fact that I'm suffering
F#5                    G#5
    So I wear my disguise
                       A5
Till I go home at night
And turn down all the lights
And then I break down and cry

(Mariah)

So what do you do
When somebody you're devoted to
Suddenly just stops loving you
And it seems they haven't got a clue
Of the pain that rejection is putting you through
Do you cling to your pride
And sing "I will survive"
Do you lash out and say "How dare you leave this way?"
Do you hold on in vain as they just slip away

(Wish)

Yeah, c' mon, yeah, c' mon, c' mon

Well I guess I'm trying to be
Nonchalant about it
And I'm going to extremes to prove
I'm fine without you
But in reality I'm slowly losing my mind
Underneath the disguise of a smile
Gradually I'm dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel
And I lie convincingly
Cause I don't want to reveal
The fact that I'm suffering
So I wear my disguise
Till I go home at night
And turn down all the lights
And then I break down and cry

(Wish)

Better break it down
Or if for your lady
Everday the situation is on my mind
Tryin' to break me down
But I won't let it
Forget it ( forget it)

(Krayzie)

I'll be feelin' like it gonna break me down
Turnin' me around
Stressin' me out
I'm thinkin' it gonna get out
And let me release some stress ( stress )

(Wish)

Don't ever wanna feel no pain ( pain )
Hoping for the sun
But it looks like rain ( rain, rain, rain )
Oh, I just wanna maintain

(Krayzie)

Yeah, I'm feelin' prescious, yo
But never the less
Krayzie won't fall
Sober, is headin near ( near )

Well I guess I'm trying to be
Nonchalant about it
And I'm going to extremes to prove
I'm fine without you
But in reality I'm slowly losing my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile
Gradually I'm dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel
And I lie convincingly
Cause I don't want to reveal
The fact that I'm suffering
So I wear my disguise
Till I go home at night
And turn down all the lights
And then I break down and cry
