Sometimes I Forget to Smile

Look, I've got everything in place
My feelings safely locked away
in the heart of a glacier
I gaze stony-eyed ahead


Please don't chip away
at the ice
and don't look at me
with those eyes

Don't try to look
into my soul
Stop excavating this crater,
this hole

Let me function
pretend you believe
I'm really all right

Because sometimes
the fa├žade crumbles
the mask slips
And I forget to smile.
