Fake smiles & Unshed tears

Broken hearts buried deep,
Nightmares haunt her in her sleep,
Sins that are trying to be forgotten,
All she is,
is Fake Smiles and Unshed Tears.

Faking laughter,
Forcing smiles,
Acting like she cares,
Hiding her scars with make-up,
She has to keep this fascade up with,
Fake Smiles and Unshed Tears.

Strong as a stone,
Always ready for battle,
Wanting to be alone,
Trusting no one,
All She's got is,
Fake Smiles and Unshed Tears.

Always acting like she's okay,
Letting out the pain in a bad way,
Kissing boys that arent her boyfriend,
Knowing how this will end,
Leaving her all alone,
She'll have nothing except,
Fake smiles and unshed tears.

Hiding her emotions,
Just going through the expected motions,
Laughing when she's suppose to,
Never telling the truth,
It'll always be her,
and Fake smiles and Unshed tears.
