Yes, you, girl, sparkle and shine and you’re hiding it underneath a broken smile and letting your heartache get to you.
You all think I got everything, that I’m a nice girl with a smile always on her face. I ain’t that, alright? You don’t know me at all. In this world I don’t know my place. I’m sad and depressed and I don’t have anywhere to fall.
You asked me what was wrong and I said nothing but as you turned around a tear ran down my cheek as I whispered, “Everything..”
You can fake a smile for everyone else but you’ll never hide the truth from yourself.
You can’t see I’m hurting. You’re too blind to notice my pain. It feels like everyone is sitting in sunshine while I’m drowning in the rain.
When I look around I think this is good enough and I try to laugh at whatever life brings because when I look down, I just miss all of the good stuff and when I look up I just trip over things.
You know I don’t think I will ever be happy. Wherever I am I’ll wish I’m somewhere else. Whatever I have I’ll want something different.
When I’m all alone at home I just cry. I wish that I could just lie like I’m happy but I can’t fight this hurt inside.
You look at me and see a beautiful girl living in a perfect world but on the inside all I really am is a broken heart and shattered dreams.
When it hurts so much what can I do? When everything is wrong what should I do? When everyone is fake what should I think? The only thing that’s always there for me is sorrow.
When she cries, the makeup runs from her eyes and she spills the truth about how she feels inside.
You say I choose sadness, that it never once has chosen me.
