Happy Face 

Happy face

Put on your happy face

Cover your hurt and shame

The pain no one knows

Happy face

Hide away who you are

Camouflage every scar

That’s just how it goes

No one wants to see the way you’re hurting

No one wants to hold you when you cry

The hearts you hold can’t heal away the heartache

So protect them and lock it away in you sealed with a smile

Happy face

Hide in your happy place

Hold to the hope and grace

You don’t always feel

Happy face

There is a better way

Rest assured that one day

Your smile will be real
