the tears
scalding burning searing
as she holds herself
and no one listens to the sobs
she disguises as a laugh

and if you asked her what was wrong
she'd smile and brush it off
she believes in honesty when it doesn't hurt her

laughter was her cure all
till it began to fail
and somehow it doesn't hold her like
she was used to

don't ask her whats wrong
cos she'll only tell you nothing
she pretends to be okay so she doesn't get scared

and as she's falling falling down
she won't call out for help
she already fears no one is there
to catch her before the ground
