Why Are You Sad?
are you hurt?
has this been going on long?
your smile lies and your eyes seem to turn
day in and day out
always on the run
maybe in constant doubt
burnt by the harshness of the sun
cheer up sweet heart
don't let this get you down
it may seem like things are falling apart
i prefer that beautiful smile instead of a constant frown
i wish you all the happiness in the world
you have every reason to be glad
your one of a kind like a shiny pearl
it hurts me to see you this way
that's why i constantly ask, are you sad?
