That Girl

She's that girl you see
walking down the fresh rain poured street.
with a smile on her face,
but a frown on her heart.
make-up puts on her grace
but just untill she falls apart.

You would never know it
she tries not to show it
she can only smile from the outside
her heart is black and blue
but no one can see through
she only wonders why it even beats everytime.

3 boys have broken her heart
but thats not the reason why she's living in the dark
when she goes home its just the abuse not only from herself but emotionally too.

You would never know it
she tries not to show it
she can only smile from the outside
her heart is black and blue
but no one can see through
she only wonders why it even beats everytime.

She's got a fake smile on her face.
her heart on her sleave.
learning every step of the way.
so ashamed

she's never been touched with a knife
but she puts it up to her skin just to know what it feels like
a peaceful paradise.

You would never know it
she tries not to show it
she can only smile from the outside
her heart is black and blue
but no one can see through
she only wonders why it even beats everytime.

A smile on her face
A frown on her heart
make-up puts on her grace
but just untill she falls apart

I can relate to this. Thank you for writing it because it makes people aware that there are girls out there who are suffering, who too often go unnoticed.

It has a good message. It's also a well written song, and I bet it sounds even better on guitar. One thing I noticed was it has no bridge. However, every song-writer has a different technique, and in some songs, a bridge just won't fit. It's good, and keep up writing.
