Brave face, and English illusion
Stiff lips soft and creamy inside
I'm hip to your pain and confusion
You can't tell how much suffering
On a face that's always smiling
I swore I would always be with you
But now I'm afraid of your tears
I fear that you might take me with you
You can't tell how much suffering
On a face that's always smiling
I've grinned my way through beatings
I've smiled my way through school
But underneath this grinning
Is the sadness of the fool
No longer know my feelings
Been fooling for too long
Borne of desperation in an effort to look strong
Look strong, look strong
Hey there monkey face you look so strong
That joke could crack you with laughter
Release from the edge of despair
Success is the god that I'm after
In jokes, I'm a millionaire
You can't tell how much suffering
On a face that's always smiling
