Please no
the worlds slip from her
like her dress from her body
but he must not hear her
because he continues
and she is too weak
to say it again
she's trying desperately
to please some one
anyone (but herself)
and all she wants
is to be happy
and he gives her
that feeling of joy
so this must be her payment
for that small smile
that he can put on her face
as if nothing were wrong
and he pretends as though
he didn't hear her
and he isn't just using her
and at the end of the night
he'll kiss her (good-bye)
and it'll (not) all be worth it
for that one smile
