You Like It When I Smile

That's why I do it.

When I'm alone you don't know

In the dark you can't see.

Just turn the light on

and you will see a new me.


I desire to be liked

because everyone else likes lively, loving liars.

The truth is I'm not always okay, happy, or content

Sometimes I become quite a whiner.


My mood changes from day to day

Sometimes I sing "Happy" because it's the truth.

But a smile on my face,

just can't be the only proof.


So next time you see me or a friend

you might not know far he is bent

Trying to do the cool thing,

be happy and chill

Let him know you care

I'm sure he'll be thrilled.
