Perfectly graceful on the surface
They're all fascinated with my sweet face
But I'm tired of keeping up with this pace
It's always a competition or an intense race
Since the day I stepped into this world
All the ones that surrounded me were so cold
But as I grew up and grew old
I became stronger, I became bold
But soon... it all began to make sense
I tried and was able to jump that fence
And althought at times I still felt tense
My heart was full of love, it was so dense
Busy.. motivated... smart
"She's good at everything! Even art!"
But no one sees my broken heart
They all see what I show... not the hidden part
I was taught to be strong and smile through it all
Even when the season is sad.. and it's Fall
And with the weight of the world on my shoulders, I still stand tall
I can never let them all in, there will always be a wall
They won't know about half the battles I fight
They took away daddy's job.. It wasn't right
But I was still able to see the light
And all those strangers thought my life was bright
I was constantly in a tough spot
I had to check my accont twice each time something i bought
But I fought and fought and fought....
Life was my best teacher and what lessons it taught!
Breaking under the pressure of life...
And I could no longer bear to be his wife...
So I decided to live for today... not the afterlife
Because I learned that our closest ones stab us in the back with a knife
Perfectly graceful on the surface...
But they'll never know the secrets that hide behind my face...
