ever wondered what goes through other people's heads?
what they might be thinking about?
what kind of stories linger behind a single face?
that funny old man that crosses your path every morning -
would you believe that he conquered cancer a dozen times?
nevertheless he smiles, as if he ain't soon about to die
look around, do you see that beautiful young lady in her summer dress?
who would think that she's exposed to domestic violence
and that behind that thin piece of fabric she hides bruises and a never resting panic
keep observing, behind you - the man that shrugs at every loud noise
do not judge him, just a year ago he stood on the battlefield with a gun
he saw his friends die, look closer and you'll see in his eyes the wars that he still fights
you would probably never mind the kid at the corner with her holey clothes
nobody would believe her why she stole a single lolly out of the store
it was for her younger brother who is starving at home
if people would take a closer look at you -
what would they get to see behind your seemingly happy smile?
what demons do you hide?
