A cup of coffee, a faked smile,
Another sleepless night.
Forget the sorrow; pretend you're fine;
In the end you'll be alright.

And then the memories suddenly rise,
And then emotions are running high,
And all you want to do is –
Stop, you've got to fake a smile.

You walk along the roads alone.
The mask must never, ever, fall.
At times you wish to let it go,
But then you can't, and this is all

About to slip beyond control,
About to shatter you to pieces
You still don't let yourself to cry
Though tears are in your list of wishes

Facing the world a minute by minute,
Knowing your life is an act.
A cup of coffee, a faked smile,
Another sleepless night.

I realized how ironic my comment was once I'd posted it. XD You can be sure it was a perfectly real smile, auntie. :) You're welcome!
