I want to Smile for myself
Smile coz the world wants you to,
Smile coz the world is beautiful too!
Smile coz others don't deserve your pain,
Smile coz sadness makes you insane;
Smile coz people like you that way,
Smile coz there's no other way!
But sometimes the smile wears off
The mask tears off
And tears just roll off !
How long can you pull off a facade?
A facade of hollow laughter
A smile because you hafta*
A mask of a happy face
Those stitches behind the pretty lace?
I want to live life
Not just drift through it.
I want life to move with me
Not me to move with it.
I want to be loved
Not just keeping loving.
I want to be cared for
Not just keep caring.
I want to be understood
Not just keep understanding.
I want to Smile coz life's no strain,
I want to Smile coz there's no pain,
I want to Smile coz of happiness,
I want to Smile coz there's no sadness.
For once I want to smile for myself
