You can't miss what you never knew.


No one knows or understands
She fakes a smile they offer their hands
Another day she cannot stand
She says she’s fine
But we know she’s lying
But she won’t shed a tear
No, she won’t show a fear

Because she’s hiding it inside
Everything she needs in life
Just look in her eyes
They all see but make up lies
Just tell me why she cries tonight
Why she’s hiding it inside

No one knows or understands
She walks through the door, drinks till she can’t stand
Takes her life in her own hands
She trusted him, he played her well
No on caught her when she fell
But she won’t shed a tear
No, she won’t show her fear

Because she’s hiding it inside
Everything she needs in life
Just look in her eyes, can’t you see she’s dying inside
And we all see, still we make up lies
So tell me why she cries tonight
Why she’s hiding deep inside

The author's comments:
The inspiration for this piece is somewhat complicated. The idea mainly came from observation of a close friend, and the undying question of why won’t anybody stop this? Or, why doesn’t anybody care?
