I’ve learned how to live with pain
Accepting all its torture
Forgetting about happiness
And all that it could cure
I guess as time goes by
Changes occur in your beliefs
No longer remembering what did exist
Is where you find relief
Covered up by many smiles
Now a smile is all that anybody knows
Happiness is not in the picture
Yet, the sadness never shows
To become a face that brightens
The day of people that you see
Takes away from all the darkness
This temporarily sets me free
