Her Smile

by, Cassandra

And, oh, I bet you didn't know
That she's so close to breaking down,
That she's losing so much ground.
And, oh, how could you have known
That she's so close to giving up?
Her smile fools the best of them.

(And she laughs as she asks,
"Are you ready for the melt down?"
)

And, oh, I bet you didn't see
The tears shining in her eyes,
Her soul behind a guise.
And, oh, how could you have known
That she's so close falling down?
Her smile fools the best of them.

(And there are tears in her eyes as she calmly replies,
"Break down in T-minus five seconds, and counting."
)

And, oh, I bet you didn't know.
And, oh, how could you have known?
She's breaking down, she's losing ground.
She's giving up, she's given up,
But her smile fools them all.

(And she smiles through the tears,
"It's been a pleasure knowing ya."
)

And, oh, how could you have known?
Her smile fooled the best of them.
