Keeping up Appearances

by | November 15, 2016

Hold your head up girl   keep-your-head-up

Don’t let tem see your knees wobble girl

stand tall and keep your balance.

Wipe your eyes girl

don’t let them see you crying.

Shut your mouth and endure your pain

or else they’ll hear you screaming.

Don’t look at them too long girl

it’s okay if your memories are fading.

I thought I told you not to cry

your mascara is smearing

Don’t look at them in the eye girl

or else they’ll see your soul

just keep your back straight girl

and they will never know…
