Then (She Cries).

Then (She Cries).

She goes to work,
She puts on her smile,
She’s beautiful,
If only for a while,
O’, if she looks the part,
Maybe she’ll forget,
But for now, her beauty lies,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, she’s beautiful, but,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, just beyond her smile,
Lies her aching heart,
Swollen with her tears and broken pride,
She’s just a moment away,
From losing it all,
But it makes her feel safe now, just to hide,
So she hides,
‘Til she finds time alone, then,
She cries,

O’, when she finds time alone, then,
She cries,

O’, she comes home,
And loves her only child,
She’s so beautiful,
If only for a while,
O’, if her baby smiles,
Maybe she’ll forget,
But for now, she only tries,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, she’s beautiful, but,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, just beyond her smile,
Lies her aching heart,
Swollen with her tears and broken pride,
She’s just a moment away,
From losing it all,
But it makes her feel safe now, just to hide,
So she hides,
‘Til her baby goes to sleep, then,
She cries,

O’, when her baby goes to sleep, then,
She cries,

O’, she hides under a smile,
That’s so beautiful to see,
But just beyond the surface,
Is a pain she can’t believe,
And every now and then,
When her heart can hold no more,
In her eyes,
You’ll realize,
Her soul’s an open door,

And the tears she holds are way too big,
To hide there anymore,

Her happiness is broken,
Her truth will hit the floor,

O’, she goes on,
Masquerading in her smile,
She’s beautiful,
If only for a while,
Maybe if she tries,
Her strength will pay her debt,
But in her weakness,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, she’s beautiful, but,
She isn’t happy yet,

O’, just beyond her smile,
Lies her aching heart,
Swollen with her tears and broken pride,
She’s just a moment away,
From losing it all,
But it makes her feel safe now, just to hide,
So she hides,
‘Til she finds time alone, then,
She cries,

O’, when her baby goes to sleep, then,
She cries,
O’, when she’s looking right at you, then,
She lies,
But when she’s looking for the truth, then,
She cries, then,
She cries, o’, then,
She cries,

O’, then and only then,
She cries.
