S M I L E . . .

S M I L E !

That's what they all say 

Try faking a smile to mask the pain 

Try to stay alive day by day 

Asking for forgiveness that you must pay 

Now once you're quiet 

People pay attention  

to your emotions and desires 

that they've been missing

S M I L E !

Try faking a smile to mask the pain

Back at it again feeling the same

Feel dead- I mean well yet?!

Try smiling you'll feel well then

S M I L E !

It's just a word

A word that hurts

There's a million broken smiles

With their souls rivials

So don't say smile

It's a curse...

That awaits..

to become worst.
