You have the sweetest of smiles
But you have a broken one, too
I think your mind has you captive
It's like your mind won't let loose

You have such beautiful eyes
But I know they're hurting, like you
They share a weight that you carry
Reflect a part of your truth

And would you tell me, how is it?
To have a heart made of gold
How are you kind while you're breaking?
While this pain is scratching you raw

Would you tell me; how do you do it?
Keep that smile so sweet?
Tell me, how do you hide this
When it hurts the most while you breathe
