this is not about a car crash

i caught a confused look that came across your face
when i said that i was doing okay

It's like you didn't understand how i could smile again
after everything that happened

The flashing lights, the shattered glass
I Said "if i'm headed for heaven it's not very fast"

And you said
"You should torn up
You should worn out
you should be crying
 i think... 
at least a little bit
It's just not natural
To smile in the face defeat"
and i said... (i said)
it's seems natural to me

I turn my head to side and break a little smile
at thought that you are saying-

"I should give up the front, remove this disguise
and for once open my eyes"

The flashing lights, the shattered glass
I Said "i'm headed to hell with my foot on the gas"

And you said
"You should torn up
You should worn out
you should be crying
 i think... 
at least a little bit
It's just not natural
To smile in the face defeat"
and i said... (i said)
it's seems natural to me

I don't think you understand
What it's like to be dead inside
It's hard to cry-- when
the fountain has been dried up for years
The fountain has been dried up for years
the fountain has been dried up for years

So don't tell me
i should torn up
i should worn out
i don't think that i should be crying 
at all.
It just seems natural to me
To smile in the face of defeat
I smile in the face of defeat
a smile to every face that i meet
a smile is just what you see
