* Hinted in the second verse of Hall & Oates' hit "Everything Your Heart Desires":
-->You tell me your best friend's world seems beautiful\\
But don't be fooled, it's nice work if you can get it\\
What goes on behind closed doors, you don't know\\
Maybe she cries herself to sleep every night

** For what it's worth, the RealitySubtext (the song was written and recorded as Freddy Mercury as entering the final stages of dying of an AIDS-related illness) heavily supports a Depressed interpretation of someone desperately trying to put a brave face on tremendous pain and unhappiness.

* The song "Ah, but Underneath" from ''{{Follies}}.'' The entire song sings about a woman who seemed to be something on the surface, but was something different underneath the top layer. But that layer, too, was "just a shell," and so it continues. The very last line is "Sometimes when the wrappings fall, there's nothing underneath at all!" making this Emptiness.

Added DiffLines:

* Very much in the same way, Music/ToveLo portrays one of these in her song ''Habits'', especially in the music video. The HardDrinkingPartyGirl persona of her alter ego in the song is just a facade to cope with losing "her" lover, and the facade crumbles at several points in said video.

* Music/TheScript's "Six Degrees Of Separation" is about someone who is depressed after a breakup but tries to act like they're happy.
-->Fake a smile\\
Yeah, lie and say, "I'm better now than ever"\\
And your life's okay\\
Well it's not, no\\
You're doing all these things out of desperation\\
Oh, woah\\
You're going through six degrees of separation
