    Its there behind the smile
    Behind the mirrors you wear
    Reflecting so all the while
    They wont notice or bother to care.

    Its right there buried deep
    Inside your skipping heart
    Struggling for each beat
    From pain that tears it apart.

    Its always on the outside
    You choose to show you're fine
    No one feels the struggle
    You're loosing down inside.

    Its always a suprise
    When the solemn day occurs
    They always wonder why
    What caused you so much hurt?

    You always seemed so pleasant
    So helpful, so sincere
    They never thought the battles you fought
    Caused you any tears...

    Its always on such solemn days
    Tho forgotten every time
    Its a lesson learned
    That should be burned
    In every loved ones mind.

    Sometimes behind the happiest smile
    Remember what you read
    The beating hearts an open casket
    We're never what we seem.
