lyrics

Behind A Happy Smile

Inhale.
Exhale.
Breathe in and out.
While some of us whisper,
Others have to shout!
But still no one hears us.
So we hide for a while.
And pretend we’re not crying
Behind a happy smile!

It’s a compromise. Against the pain.
It's when you realize you’re in that place again!
Where people see through you.
And they try to reconcile…
That the one who should be crying,
Is the one with the happy smile!

I know that look
I’ve seen it all before.
It’s the mask you wear
When you can’t take anymore!
It’s your best disguise…
When you hide from yourself.
And, when you think you’re fooling
Everybody else!

It’s a compromise. Against the pain.
When you realize you’re in that place again!
Where people see through you.
And they try to reconcile…
That the one who should be crying,
Is the one with the happy smile!

Inhale.
Exhale.
Breathe in and out.
