The pretender

She'll smile when she wants to cry
And live when she wants to die
You'll never know
When she's being real
It's all an act
And the world is her stage
She's afraid to get close
To reveal her secrets
It's hard to break through
Her tough exterior
On the outside
She pretends not to care
But on the inside
Her heart is made of pure gold
She wants to know
Everything in the world
Like what is at the end of the rainbow
That she can see from her window
She doesn't want anyone too close
She's scared to give her heart away
There are secrets
That no one will know
And yet she sits
Waiting for someone to come along
