Do not be fooled by my smile,
I am not at peace when I laugh,
I am not home when I am in ecstasy,
I wish to feel the settlement of my heart,
Within the warmth of your hand.

No one has the slightest effect on me,
Like you do.
I always keep you in mind,
Even in the arms of another.

my tears bled
like diamonds onto the sidewalk
and the sun soaked them up
before they had a chance to shine.

I'm standing in a crowd
with thousands of people
I'm laughing and dancing
pretending to have fun
hoping someone will notice me
but no one does
tears start welling in my eyes
I dance even more
pretending to be happy
pretending I'm not lonely
