Why do you hide behind that smile?
Speak up about the pain you hide
I see its shadow lingering in your eyes
So why do we have to play this game
Where you pretend to be someone
Who has a perfect hold on his life
What is that scares you so much?
Speak up about the truth and fears
Don’t let judgment of people turn
You in to another sheep in the crowd
Don’t compromise on who you are
Nothing is better than being yourself
Why do hold back the anger and pain?
Speak up about being betrayed
Scream and curse if you need to
But stop biting your tongue, swallowing
Honest words and slowly becoming
Hollow and trapped in an unwanted life
What will it take to be freely yourself?
Speak up about everything that matters
To you for this time will not come back
As you forcefully try to be someone else
Believe the people who believe in you
Stand and speak, for they support you
