You put on a mask
You treated me different 
You said I was smart
You said I was nice 
We talked and we laughed 
You said I was pretty
I thought you were different

So I fell into your trap 
Of smiles, deception, what felt like perfection
To me
Then you took off your mask
And everything came crashing down

Then some time passed
You acted different 
I thought maybe I'd dreamed what had happened three months ago 
So I pushed it away
And everything went back to normal 
I thought you had changed 
And this time was different 

So I kept falling in your trap 
Of smiles, deception, what felt like perfection
To me 
Then you took off your mask 
And everything came crashing down

And you didn't see 
The crying, the hiding, the lying, the dying inside
Because you only thought about you
What you wanted, what you had, what I had that you stole from me 

So I won't fall into your trap 
Of smiles, deception, what wasn't perfection
At all
Because I know when 
You take off your mask
Everything comes crashing down

    I must say that every word is saying something in this piece. The tone is very clear and strong.
