 F   (This sounds good for the F in the verse)

VERSE 1
F
She's working late and making eyes at the dough, She's sick of everybody up on her floor,
 Dm             C                 F
She wants the sun in her eyes, but all she gets is ignored
F
She used to put it out and get it all back, But now she's sipping trying to carry the act,
 Dm              C                   F
She's sweating under the lights, now she's beginning to pack


CHORUS
F
No you don't have to wear your best fake smile, Don't have to stand there and burn inside 
Dm   C            F
Oh oh oh, if you don't like it
F
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend Nobody needs a best fake friend
Dm   C      F
Oh oh oh, don't hide it


VERSE 1
F
No hesitation now, she gets up and walks, She thinks of all the pain and pride did it cost
 Dm              C                      F
She empties all the tip jars, and won't get back what she lost
F
Outside the window we're two fingers to show She lifts her head I'm like some blur out of smoke
 D           C                   F
She doesn't have to look back to know where she's gotta go

CHORUS 2
F
No you don't have to wear your best fake smile, Don't have to stand there and burn inside 
Dm  C            F
Oh oh oh, if you don't like it
F
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend, Nobody needs a best fake friend
Dm  C      F
Oh oh oh, don't hide it


BRIDGE:
          Bb             Dm       C
If you don't bleed it, you don't need it anymore
          Bb             Dm           C
If you don't need it, get up and leave it on the floor
        Bb           Dm             C
No more believing like it's a voice you can't ignore
          Bb
If you don't need it, you don't need it no

CHORUS 3
F
No you don't have to wear your best fake smile, Don't have to stand there and burn inside 
Dm  C            F
Oh oh oh, if you don't like it
F
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend, Nobody needs a best fake friend
Dm  C      F
Oh oh oh, don't hide it

CHORUS 
F
No you don't have to wear your best fake smile, Don't have to stand there and burn inside 
Dm  C            F
Oh oh oh, if you don't like it
F
And you don't have to care, so don't pretend, Nobody needs a best fake friend
Dm  C      F
Oh oh oh, don't hide it
