Analysis of Don't Believe Her Smile

Don't believe her smile.
It's all a lie.
Her smile has so much to hide.
She isn't as happy as she seems.
The stories she has are unbelievable.
She's been through more than most her age.
You couldn't tell by just looking at her though.
How does she stay so strong?
Don't believe her smile.
It's all a lie.
