Behind the Smile

Behind the Smile~
Words bled out across the pages
of an unforgotten past
past frayed edges of heaven’s gate
where butterflies and angels wait
and it’s never too late.
she’ll smile, so you can’t see her
it’s part of a greater plan
not that you’d understand
but you think you can.
Painted message on the mirror
“make this day a better day”
doesn’t matter how you get there
Just as long as you stay
until that day
when worn out pages
become kindling for a fire
bet you didn’t know
but you think you know
[Chorus repeat]
…she’ll smile so you can’t see her
