How can my face be lit by a grin
When a frown is all I want to wear?
How can I fake my happiness
If it isn’t really there?
Well, let me tell you something:
I may dance and I may sing
But faking my emotions
Isn’t really my thing.
I know a lot about me
And I’ll tell you this for good:
I won’t do something
Just because you think I should.
So don’t try and force my smile out
And don’t make me conceal it.
Let me be sad when I truly am
And happy when I feel it.
