(Gary Burr/Hillary Lindsey/Bruce Bouton)

When you know you don't need the time to talk about it
When you hear your heart say you'll be fine without it
It's hard to find the strength to fight a battle you're not in
From the outside, we appear to be the way we've always been

How I look and how I feel, what I'm told and what is real
That's two different things
What they ask and what I'll pay, what I think and what I say
That's two different things
It isn't kind, it isn't fair
I have to draw the line somewhere
And face the tears that it brings
Cause what you've got and what I need
Is two different things

Don't you see we've been nothing but a grand illusion
Pardon me if I show the world the tricks we're using
Well I'm the first to tell you now that half the blame is mine
We can keep pretending that tomorrow we'll be fine

How I look and how I feel, what I'm told and what is real
That's two different things
What they ask and what I'll pay, what I think and what I say
That's two different things
It isn't kind, it isn't fair
I have to draw the line somewhere
And face the tears that it brings
Cause what you've got and what I need
Is two different things

Everything you offer me should make me turn and stay
But black is white and wrong is right
It's hard to live that way

How I look and how I feel, what I'm told and what is real
That's two different things
What they ask and what I'll pay, what I think and what I say
That's two different things
It isn't kind, it isn't fair
I have to draw the line somewhere
And face the tears that it brings
Cause what you've got and what I need
Is two different things

Cause what you've got and what I need
Is two different things
Two different things
Two different things
