Behind The Smile
You see her smile, and she seems alright.
But what you don’t see is that she is crying inside
You think if she is sad, why doesn't she shed a tear?
Maybe showing emotion is her biggest fear.
She doesn't want people to see something is wrong.
All she wants is for people to think her heart is strong.
She doesn't want to know what others might say,
If she just broke out in tears one day.
Just remember what goes up must come down
And a smile can easily cover up a frown.
This girl, if you cannot see,
Is no one other than me.
