Behind this smile,
Lies a heart that is breaking,
And nobody knows,
That I am faking

My happiness,
Is like a cape,
It covers me up,
So I can escape

Those painful words,
That are constantly spoken,
Cause my tears to fall,
And my skin to be broken

I sit and cry,
My tears like a flood,
Which join up with,
Drops of my blood

I nurse my wounds,
I dry my eyes,
I look in the mirror,
And then to the skies

Through the steamy window,
I see the stars and the moon,
And I start to think,
That I'll be okay soon
