There was a time, when I thought we had it all
Everything we did or said seemed to be
All that we could want

I can see, I can see where I went wrong
A paper charade and a face that betrayed
What my heart knew all along

That you just can’t hide
From what’s inside
No you can’t afford to lose just who you are

Look at my eyes cos they ain’t lying
You can see that I’ve been crying
But it’s all right … it’s all right
I’m smiling on the inside

Now I know where I am going
And I’m not afraid of what I’m showing
Yes I’m all right … I’m all right
I’m smiling on the inside now
I’m smiling on the inside

But I could never be
All you wanted me to be
Too many times
I could see in your eyes
Your looks were not for me

It took me some time
To recover the thoughts that were mine
Lost in the sea
Of me trying to please
And be the perfect one

No, you can’t keep hiding
From what’s inside
No you can’t afford to lose just who you are

Look at my eyes cos they ain’t lying
You can see that I’ve been crying
But it’s all right … it’s all right
I’m smiling on the inside

Now I know where I am going
And I’m not afraid of what I’m showing
Yes I’m all right … I’m all right
I’m smiling on the inside
I’m smiling on the inside
I’m smiling on the inside
break

Look at my eyes cos they ain’t lying
You can see that I’ve been crying
But it’s all right … it’s all right
I’m smiling on the inside

Now I know where I am going
And I’m not afraid of what I’m showing
Yes I’m all right … I’m all right
I’m smiling on the inside
I’m smiling on the inside
I’m smiling on the inside
