Take Everything Away

When you take away all the fake smiles and forced laughs

Take away all things that I've conviced myself that I am

Your left with a girl 

A shy naive girl who can barely stand 
To look herself in the mirror
Now I don't wear makeup often
But I might as well be
If you turned all of the forced laughter
And fake smiles
Into makeup
Baby, I'd be a barbie doll
