What mysteries lie behind a smile
And what stories lie untold behind a laugh
Those who appear to be happy
Aren’t always as they seem
Sometimes I feel as though
I am the one hiding behind myself
Sometimes I don’t feel like talking
I don’t feel like laughing
But you gotta smile through it
Because that’s what people expect
Your smile is therapy to others
But where’s the relaxation for you
Who knows what goes on?
Who knows what battles have to be won?
Who knows what problems are masked?
Who knows who is really happy?
Or just hiding behind a smile
