It's All In The Eyes

A picture says a thousand words; a smile can too.
A laugh can tell you a lot, as well...
but to hide behind those things is quite easy to do.

For it's easy to say when asked "I'm perfectly fine, why?"
Fake smiles, and forced laughs... But on the inside, you cry.

I had become quite an expert;
at hiding scars and holding tears.
Misery can become like a drug,
Gratefully, I've been sober for years.

But I hold no regrets in this heart of mine, for I learned something quite valuable along the way.
It's almost kind of like a superpower... having the strength to let the past float away.

Maybe a smile can tell you a lot.
Some may believe that a picture tells no lies.
But if you really wish to know the story? I'm telling you darling, it's all in the eyes.
