Can you see the pain in my eyes,
All the pain that makes me cry??
Do you see the real me,
Or just what you make me out to be??
I always try to force a smile,
For a friend I haven\'t seen in a while.
Do you even really see,
All the pain you\'ve caused for me??
Does anyone know that I lie,
When I say that I\'m doing fine??
All my smiles have been so fake,
Why is my life such a mistake??
I try to make things right but I can\'t,
My life is always traveling this downward slant.
I try to get better; but I always fall back down,
That\'s why all you ever see is a frown.
Maybe one day;
I\'ll finally be able to say,
That I\'m ok.
When that day comes it won\'t be a lie,
I won\'t have any tears left to cry.
I\'ll finally be happy and smile real smiles,
They won\'t be painted or made to be seen.
But that day will never come because you\'re always so mean.
Youll never understand,
The person I am.
You say hurtful things to bring me down,
You make me cry and always frown.
When you leave and go far away,
I will no longer curse the day.
