They never even ask,
It seems that I have fooled them all. They can’t see past my mask,
If they were with me late at night,
When the world was still asleep,
Maybe then I’d let them sort,
Through the secrets that I keep.
But when I wake at 2am,
I lend everyone my ear,
And no one my heart, I sure would like to change that,
But I don’t know where to start.
I smile more to myself,
Than the world will ever see, Because the only time my smile is real, is in my own company.
People don’t know how I feel,
They never even ask.
