The Smile I'm Faking
Could anyone see the smile I’m faking?
Inside of me I’m constantly shaking
And people say they know me well
But couldn’t see through my darkest shell
I hid behind this wall long ago
And no one knew; my sadness was unknown
I was left living through this anguish alone
Lost in the deepest darkness of despair
The walls and the ceiling was my friend
Alone I wipe this lonesome tears
For many centuries
For many years
My body trembles, my heart is aching
My feeling so numb I could not strive
But continue to pretend
To put on that smile
I guess my pretense was too real
And no one could see what I really feel
I fool my friends, I fool my parent
I fool all people...but I can’t fool me
