'Smile', they say as the camera flashes, when all I want to do is break down in tears.
'Smile', they say as it feels like one day is turning into years.
'Smile', they say as I have to face my deepest, darkest fears.

I'm in hysterics, but they don't know it's just nerves.
A car is about to hit me, I remain hopelessly still, but it swerves.
But yet what am I told to do?
'Smile', they say as I feel like I'm taking my very last breath.

'Smile' they say, as I'm taking my very last pill.
'Smile' they say, as I try searching every ounce of emotion just to feel.

'Just smile'.
