I pull myself together
Only to tear myself apart
On the outside I may look happy
But on the inside I have a broken heart
I smile, I laugh
Pushing the tears away just for you
I cry on the inside
But you'd rather see me smile
You haven't a clue
I know this sounds like it makes no sense
But in the end its true
For me, thy pity should have no recompense
On the outside I am relaxed, serene
On the inside I am sad as a dried up stream
I am coiled up, so tense
You want me to be strong
And I want to be strong, too
So I push the tears away
In the end, just for you
