I'll wear my smile
I'll wear my laugh
I'll wear it down a sunlit path
The trees will wear emerald
The rivers wear silver
The meadows wear colors in widespread slivers
I'll wear that smile
I'll wear that laugh
I'll take it down that sunlit path
We'll play dress up
But when playtime is done
We'll show you reality
No more dress up fun
No more pretending
No place to hide
No more pretending...Only the real side
The smile's cracked
The laugh is dry
The path is dark with no moonlight
The tree's are dead
The river's dry
The lights are shattered and scattered wide
No more pretending
No place to hide
I never liked dress up
I thought it was all a lie...
