Picture me just like an egg
All hardened by the heat
The heat of the stove is really just
My old reality

But there's one important thing
That you might really care to see
On my face there's a smile
In big bold black sharpie.

And this smile
It isn't coming off
Even when I've been through stuff
I'm strong and you don’t notice when I'm down
I'm still a hard boiled egg with a sharpie smile anyhow

People often misconceive my lips curled up just so
A lot of times they wonder but they don't even know
If you just take a second out of your busy life
You'd see the things I'm really going through

And this smile
It isn't coming off
Even when I've been through stuff
I'm strong and you don’t notice when I'm down
I'm still a hard boiled egg with a sharpie smile anyhow

So next time that you see my smile, instead of wondering
Why don't you just ask me if that's really what I mean.

You never know-I might be really sad
Or maybe I might even be
A little mad
You never know
It might be real and
On the outside I'm only made of steel
So anyways, just check and see
Make sure that I'm me

And this smile
It isn't coming off
Even when I've been through stuff
I'm strong and you don’t notice when I'm down
I'm still a hard boiled egg with a sharpie smile anyhow


You never know
Someday you might break through and get to me
Maybe you might even see the sharpie smile wash away
We'll see
But for now…I'm a hard boiled egg with a big ole sharpie smile on my face.
