The Dancer

  • Print

I want to laugh instead of cry
Don't let people see me dying
Don't know my eyes are lying
About my pain inside...

Instead of tears I smile
They think I am fine...
I give another line
To hide my mourning cry

When will I see the day
It seems it's always night
I just can't get it right
Yet on the music plays

I dance the best I can
I move gracefully poised
Ignoring all the noise
As those around applaud

But no one knows the truth
That deep inside I fall
And crash against the wall
Cannot get up again...
