Their smiles came so easy. I was awestruck… just amazed!
To wonder what it must be like to be feeling that unfazed.
To grow up with a knowing trust; that you’ll never be let down.
That someone’s looking out for you, and is here and not left town.
I felt I shouldn’t warn them of their fates so sure to come.
Cause I kinda like their happy talk, You know it really works for some.
So I smiled insincerely, tried it on, felt like a fool.
I’ll just stick to what I know, in the deep end of the pool.
