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 love this, I'm sure it sounds great when sung! The last few lines really stick with you.
And these lines made me stop and read them 5 times. Great description! (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.)
