I Fake A Smile

He says my name
I fake a smile
To hide the pain
Then wait until I get home to start the rain

His eyes twinkle
Then my eyes sprinkle
To face the fact that he is not mine
Seems to me to be a crime

Only I see him
She doesn't
She sees just the face
But I see under the mask

That he listens to metal and rock
That his heart has been sealed with a lock
He has his problems
He shows it too

He talks to me about the perfect tomboy
One that sees the real him
Someone he can enjoy
One who won't make him a toy

That he is fragile
And needs care
For him to be their teddy bear

He is blind
He can't see
That it is me
That it is me who is always on his mind

That I fake a smile
To hide the tears
