Plastered Faces

When I'm sad the whole world seems sad,
The day feels dreary,
And no one acts the same..?
When i erase my mistakes
On this computer
I wish it could erase away the pain.
The time i feel loneliest
Is when I’m in a crowded area
Because i know nobody cares.
My frown is the frown
Everyone fears.
I feel empty
Yet a smile crosses my face.
I plaster it there
So everyone gets through their day.
But when those days come,
And i can’t even pretend.
I wear a frown around
And everyone's happiness ends.
A plastered smile is always there,
Through sadness,
Through anger,
So everyone all around,
Can wear a smile all through their day.
But just once,
Even for a while,
I’d like to pretend
That the plastered smile,
Is not at all fake.
I want to be a happy bird.
I want to be free.
I'd like it to be on
For you and for me.
So when you walk around
Wear a happy face
Because when you don’t smile
In everyone’s heart,
There’s an empty space.
