The Mask

The Mask
G C
Why don’t you take off the mask
D G
Let your true self shine right through
G C
I have a question to ask
D G
Which part of you is true?
G C
I asked you how you were doing
D G
You said you were doing great
G C
Then the next time we were meeting
D G
Was at your wake

(Chorus)
So they wear the mask D
Put on the smile C
Their daily task D
To fake the style C
Ya i’m alright D
I’m doin’ fine C
Should I confide? D
Declined C
Should I confide? C
Declined G

G C
Why can’t people tell the truth
D G
About their state of mind
G C
Do they think it would be rude
D G
To be so unconfined

G C
Don’t want to be a whiner
D G
Don’t want to be a drag
G C
Trying not to be a downer
D G
Trying not to be a nag

(Chorus)
So they wear the mask D
Put on the smile C
Their daily task D
To fake the style C
Ya i’m alright D
I’m doin’ fine C
Should I confide? D
Declined C
Should I confide? C
Declined G

G C
Finally I got my covid mask
D G
And everyone has them on
G C
But it’s been like this forever
D G
A worldwide phenomenon
G
Now everyone
C
Is wearing their masks
D D
A physical manifestation
D D G
Of a lifelong task
