Your eyes are puffy and red
You cry over & over again
All the bad memories you try to forget
But it’s too tough.
You cover up the pain with a smile
It’s the perfect disguise
You say “I m alright”
But I’m not one to fall for those lies.
There’s a twinkle in your eyes
Saying that something’s not right
That there’s a secret you’re trying to hide
I’ll try to read between the lines
Break you out of your shell
Let you come around and speak
Easier said than done for me.
You get out of bed day by day
Yet you feel like you’re not really awake
You crack up jokes
And you act so strong
Just for no one to know how you truly are.
Your eyes will be bright again
It takes time, but it will be okay
There will be no more cold nights
And no more sorrows or pain
Until the moment you die
You must promise you’ll always stay
The storms will soon wash away
To be replaced by a better day.
You think you’re such a mess
You think you’re no better than anyone else
You feel as if you’re worthless
You push away your friends
And between strangers you kept distance
And it all makes no sense
But no worries
I know you will get through this.
‘Cause you’re a child of God
In His eyes, you are special
And you give the dull world a brighter glow
Oh, you’re so beautiful.
And you may not be the best
But to tell you the truth
My darling, God would bless
Even a beautiful mess
