Sza - The anonymous ones

Ever look at all the people
Seem to know exactly how to be
(How to be, how to be now, how to be)
You think they don't need piles
Of prescriptions to function naturally?
(Functioning natural)

Take a look and you might just catch it
Stay a minute more
(Minute more, minute more now, minute more)
There's a little moment after the sunny smile
Their eyes fall to the floor
(To the floor, to the floor now, to the floor)

And then truth starts peaking through
They're a lot like me and you
They can fake a smile too

The anonymous ones
Who never let you see the hate they carry
(They carry, they carry, they carry)
All those anonymous ones
Never named the quiet pain they bury
(They bury, they bury, they bur-)
Keep on keeping secrets
That they think they have to hide
What if everybody's secret is
They have that secret side?

And to know, to know we're not alone
Is all we're hoping for
I don't wanna be anonymous
I ain't gotta be anonymous
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore
(Anymore)

Spot the girl who stays in motion
Spins so fast so she won't fall
(World moving so fast, too fast)
She has built a wall of her redeemers
Keep out the question
Without it, is she worth anything at all?


Then truth starts peaking through
They're a lot like me and you
They can fake a smile too

The anonymous ones
Never let you see the hate they carry
(They carry, they carry, they carry)
All those anonymous ones
Never named the quiet pain they bury
(They bury, they bury, they bur-)

I don't wanna be anonymous
I ain't gotta be anonymous
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore

The parts you can't tell, we carry them well
But that doesn't mean they're not heavy
The parts we can't tell, we carry them well
But that doesn't mean they're not heavy
The parts we can't tell, we carry them well
But that doesn't mean they're not, heavy, heavy

Anonymous ones
Never let you see the hate they carry
(They carry, they carry, they carry)
All those anonymous ones
Never named the quiet pain they bury

Keep on keeping secrets
That they think they have to hide
What if everybody's secret is
They have that secret side?

And to know, to know we're not alone
Is all we're hoping for
I don't wanna be anonymous
I ain't gotta be anonymous
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore
