Smoke and Mirrors
Through all the smoke and mirrors,
you think your life's divine,
painting portraits through your tears,
so everything turns out fine,
you're different colors every day,
that i know for sure,
mostly different shades of gray,
behind your manicure

pick your fights and do them well,
if it'll make you feel OK,
your life remains black and white,
as dawn turns into day,

even though it turned out right,
doesn't mean it wasn't wrong,
because where you are at this point in time,
isn't always where you belong

fake a smile,
but we all know you're running from your fears,
it'll be OK in a little while,
because you're painting portraits through your tears


this is just something i found in a file on my computer, that i wrote a few months ago. i wrote it just for the joy of writing it. so, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, spill your thoughts about it! because i love hearing your opinion.

I really like this one. Sort of depressing yet revealing truth behind a fake act being put on.
Great job!

First of all, thank you SO much!  The fact that you like it, means a lot to me.

Second, I agree, it is depressing. It was never about anyone in particular, but about people who have so much pressure to be perfect, that they break down when no one's looking, but they're putting on a smile and a show for everyone.

again,
thank you.
thank you.
thank you.

Nice work.

I love the thought that you are trying to bring out through this piece. It has the potential to be a great song - more so because a lot of people can relate to it.

Lol, there's a hilarious episode of the TV show The IT Crowd that has the same title as these lyrics.

Looks cool, you really must get someone on here to write some songs for your lyrics!
