You Smile

Standard

Storm clouds form in the distance
You hold an umbrella over my head
But it is broken and rain leaks through
Still you smile, and I smile back at you.

This picture we drew is an illusion
And heat melts the paint away
But when you brush against my hand
You assure me  it will all be OK.

Still the ocean roars and the earth shivers
The stars fall and the sun burns
You put on shades and smile with your teeth
Glowing, you bring strength to me.

 

I’ll Move On

Standard

Raining on the inside
Sunshine on the out
Gotta put a smile on
To hide the clouds
No I won’t let you see me cry
No you can’t have my heart this time.
There’s a tornado in my rib cage
Lava fills my gut
Even though it hurts to breathe
I’ll move on
No I won’t let you see me fall
No you can’t hurt me at all.
‘Cause it’s winter in my brain
But summer’s in the air
Even though it’s snowing,
Well I just don’t care
No I won’t let you see me break
No you won’t bring me down today
No you won’t bring me down today
No you won’t bring me down today.

 

Believe

Standard

Believe that I tried to say goodbye
It’s just that your smile brought me to shame
And my legs grew heavier as I tried to back away.

Believe that I was going to let you go
And end this whole charade
But your skin brushed against mine and everything grew gray.

Believe that I know this is wrong
And I know you do too
So why is it the right thing is just so hard to do?

 

And So I Smile

Standard

My heart is breaking away
I feel my ribcage shrinking up
Your name is sweet ans sour on my tongue
And I’m losing faith in this word called love

{Chorus}
And so I smile
To cover up the pain
And so I smile
And tuck my emotions away
And so I smile
Even when I don’t want to
I smile so you won’t see the truth

I’m getting sick of these games
I never really liked them any way
And why am I so confused
When you seem to find this so amusing?
I was tired from the start
Now I’m just worn-out
And I’m losing

{Chorus}
And so I smile
To cover up the pain
And so I smile
And tuck my emotions away
And so I smile
Even when I don’t want to
I smile so you won’t see the truth

So what if I’m falling apart inside
So what if I have the urge to cry
So what if my heart is breaking
It don’t mean a thing…
So what if your lack of affection
Is eating at my emotions
So what if I have always wanted this
You don’t seem to give a shit

{Chorus}
And so I smile
To cover up the pain
And so I smile
And tuck my emotions away
And so I smile
Even when I don’t want to
I smile so you won’t see the truth

And so I smile
To cover up this frown
And so I smile
So you’ll turn away
And so I smile
Even when I don’t want to
I smile so you won’t se e the truth
