The pain I feel, never seen in my eyes.
Hidden to well behind a disguise.
Why do I care, what it is that you see?
I am who I am, not who you want me to be.
My life can be hard but I do what I can.
And if I should cry, am I less of a man?
Because I feel heartache, you tell me I'm weak.
Why can't you offer the comfort I seek?
I don't need to fix all the problems I face;
only some sympathy, attention, and a loved one's embrace.
Why can't I show it? Why do I hide my pain?
I don't understand it, what is there to gain?
My happy exterior is not always real.
I wear it to hide this pain that I feel.
This armor of happiness is no better than a filthy lie.
All I want is joy, attention, and to soar for the sky.
And yet still I wear it, for as long as I'm here.
For showing my sadness is my greatest fear.
