You never see it show, but you don't see what I see.
You see all the tears, and you see all the pain,But the one thing you just don't see is the composure you regain.
Every time you're down, you're then back on your feet,
And every single frown, is met with a warming greet.
Every tear, every heartache, it's just another day.
Every fear, every heartbreak, you're smiling all the way.
Your insides may be rotting, and you may be crumbling all the while,
But I think you've forgotten, that you can even manage a smile.
The tower of so many, we look to and lean on you,
But love doesn't cost a penny, and a light shines in the blue.
Tears are not a sign of weakness, tears are the proof of your strength.
And though life is filled with bleakness, don't hold it at arm's length.
I remember that you told me, it was okay to feel,
All the feelings that befall me, and your words made it real.
So now I'm telling you, allow yourself this pain,
This swelling and this bruising, these smiles that you feign.
You're stronger than you know, far more than you realise.
I know because it shows – it's reflected in your eyes.
I know because it shows – it's reflected in your life.
I know because it shows – it's reflected in your smile.
