Just because they smile doesn't mean they're happy

Cause when you look away, it fades away sadly

When they say they're okay, don't think that they're fine

Cause containing suffering is best done through lies


You must look deeper than the words from the speaker

Cause they don't want to reveal what makes them feel weaker

You must reach out to see all of their doubt

Cause the words to expse them won't leave their mouth


Be there to offer comfort

There are many who have suffered

Their thick skin is punctured

Their hearts are ruptured


Help them find a new way

Show the light of a new day

Let them know that they're brave

Show them they are saved
