A smile can hide a thousand tears
Keeping lies unknown throughout the years
Hiding away one's darkest fear
But it never heals the pain

One could hide behind a radiance of one smile
Hiding tears that flowed for miles and miles
It could take awhile
To decipher one meaning of it

It could mean a thousand definitions
There could be so many reasons
No one will understand your explanation
Of why you hide behind that smile

One smile could mean a thousand words
One smile could be a mask upon a face
One smile could hide a single trace
Of a tear rolling down a cheek
