Everytime you see me I'm full of smiles and good cheer,
but deep inside is a hurt that you don't seem to hear.
It's because I wear this mask that fools you all the time,
it keeps you from seeing this broken heart of mine.
Sometime I wish I could remove it so you can see,
all the pain and remorse that is deep inside me.
But I must keep it on and pretend each day,
so I can spread good cheer and keep your blues away.
I help all that I can and free them from their pain,
but no one can see mine so they can't do the same.
So if I bring you smiles and help you through another day,
just remember it's my mask that helps me be this way.
