The Smile I Hide Behind

You wont see my hurt. 
You wont see my pain. 
Before you see me cry, 
I'll stand out in the rain. 
When I try to show my feelings, 
You do not seem to care, 
so I keep them bottled up, 
For my pain I can not share. 
I hide behind my smile. 
This will keep me safe. 
You cant see me any how, 
like the rain you can not taste. \If you felt my feelings, 
Would you take the time to see 
just how lonely my soul feels, 
Then would you care about me? 
If you want to look for me 
The truth you want to find. 
Pull back all my laughter, 
It's the smile I hide behind.
