This is an extract of the lyrics to Diary, by Bread

 

When she confronted with the writing there

simply pretended not to care

I passed it off as just in keeping with

her totoal disconcerting air

 

How would you translate it? Why she confronted and not she was confronted?  Is there a more natural way to convey the same meaning of the second underlined part?
