Perfect On The Outside

Smiling constantly
then walking away
hiding her feelings
so that no one can see

She's the perfect image
but there's a war inside
her thoughts are always
drifting to a world otherwise

No one will know but
maybe she'll give up
let her wall down and
not act so tough

When that day comes
you might be surprised
for such a great person lies inside
the war will end and there will be peace

You just have to find the right way
to set her free!
