I've been hiding away my pain for so many years;
Hiding it behind smiles and laughs,
Trying to blink away the tears.
And it seems the harder I try,
The more I want to break down and cry.
I'm told to be strong;
That everything is fine and nothing is wrong.
But they know nothing of how I feel,
And I wish everyday that this weren't real.
Yet, here I am, alone as I'll ever be
Wishing it were easy.
