Happy Smile

by jordynlp03


The girl with the happy smile

Is hurting so bad on the inside

Everyday she puts on her face

Her second face

Not a face of backstabbing and jealousy

But a face of happiness

She gets home

and in her room it all slips away

-

The face comes off

The tears come down

Shes falling to the ground

Singin

God why me

What did I do to get this

She opens up her eyes

And hears a voice calling

Be still and find peace in me

-

She's Walking through the halls

Smilin all around

imposters talking Saying everything's okay

She crying from inside

Screaming out for help

Why can't they hear me

-

The face comes off

The tears come down

Shes falling to the ground

Singin

God why me

What did I do to get this

She opens up her eyes

And hears a voice calling

Be still and find peace

In me

-

Throwing sticks and stones

The world will never know

The world will never know

The world will never know

Throwing sticks and stones

The world will never know

The world will never know

The world will never know

My inside

-

I'm falling into God's arms

The face comes off

The tears come down

Shes falling to the ground

Singin

God why me

What did I do to get this

She opens up her eyes

And hears a voice calling

Be still and find peace in me

In my arms

Find peace

This was so straightforward and raw it brought tears to my eyes immediately. I'm honestly not really sure how to review this. I suppose you don't need to say, "her second face," cause we know, as well as saying face too many times too close to eachother can get redundant. How about also saying, "But when she gets home, in her room it all slips away.."?

"She's falling to the ground, Singin..." That's a really potent line. Singing is often all we have that will keep us strong. He sings over us also, with a Loud Voice.

The bridge is also quite appropriate: the world will never know repeated. No one ever will know the full extent of the struggles we daily face inside. That's why God's all that can really help anyway, cause He's the only one that knows, and the Only One with strength, and ultimately paradise to envelop us and wash all of it away. Every person in this world goes through much pain, not for anything they've done, but just because that's the Story. Won't be lonely when it's over, He's sworn it to us, won't be lonely for the lives feeding in His Hand. The peace is the Promise itself.

I have to say, I felt much more than the content of your actual song. Affliction producing patience, patience experience, and experience understanding and more reason of Hope

Hiii, jordyn.
I'm not much of a reviewer of lyrics - I've actually only done it once - so just bear with me. We'll get through this.

First off, I love the idea of this. It's just beautiful. I know I may be slightly biased because I believe in God, but this song really touched my heart. The chorus is just phenomenal. I loved it. Not only may this feel relatable but it's true! Thanks for sharing this with us. <3

Moving on...
I don't like the first verse. It makes sense and I completely understand what you're implying. Buuut... some phrases or certain words you used sounded awkward. For example:

The girl with the happy smile
Is hurting so bad on the inside
Everyday she puts on her face
Her second face
Not a face of backstabbing and jealousy(?)
But a face of happiness

That part in red is odd. I know what you mean. She's putting her face or façade on but it sounds like its contradicting the first line on "the girl with the happy smile". As if the girl with the happy smile is what she naturally is and then, she puts her face on- "Her face" not equaling the "girl with the happy smile". I suggest you say Everyday she puts on that face". "That" referring back to the "girl with the happy smile".
The line "Not a face of backstabbing and jealousy" also bothered me a bit. It leaves this impression she is always backstabbing and jealous - that's her first face - then, quickly shoves on the façade of happy girl with a smile.

Like, I said before I loved the chorus but one thing bothered me about it. You say:
She's falling to the ground
Singin
God why me

Um, why would she be singing? I would think she would fall to the ground cryin or prayin, but definitely not singin. That was weird.

The bridge was good and repetitive like most bridges are but it ended rather abruptly. I want more of "her inside", more of what it feels like. Or you could just take out the "inside" thing. I'd like it either way. : )

The ending section that's similar to the chorus wasn't equaling each other out. You begin with: I'm falling into God's arms to She's falling to the ground in the space of two lines. I thought you were going to make this personal. I'm falling into God's arms... I'm falling to the ground... I open up my eyes and hear a voice...
But you didn't do that. So I'm confused. What exactly are you trying to do there?

Well, that wasn't that bad, was it? Was it? Once more, thank you for sharing this Jordyn, I enjoyed it wholeheartedly. One more thing I wanted to say was I like how you finished the chorus with: Be still and fine peace in me. A lot of people are probably all like, what in the world is that supposed to mean?! But hey, I get it. And love it. <3
Have a great day, and remember:
keep up the writing! ;)
adieu

First of all, nicely done. Very nice. I have a suggestion or two, you may do with them what you wish.

The words singing is spelling wrong every time you write it (you wrote singin) simple error and an easy fix.

Also, id like to point out that Every time you get to the part of "Be Still And Find Peace In Me" you need to put them all on the same line every time. In the fourth stanza you stuck the "In Me" further down. It makes more sense if you do them all the same way.

The second stanza keys and is written very well- it is my favorite.

I'm not crazy about the first stanza as much though, I get the point loud and clear, but it doesn't seem to flow as well as some of the others.

Some punctuation at the ends of lines would help to phrase it nicely. It helps the reader understand exactly what you are saying the first time they read it. Ex.

God why me,
What did I do to get this?

I think that will add a nice touch and a finishing professional look to it.

Don't be desicourage by that load of comments, you can do with them whatever you want. Overall I really really enjoyed this and I see your message very clearly. Keep writing!
