Treasure Island

Porcelain Smile


This porcelain smile is fading
And showings signs of a crack
The strength is slowing weakening
My confidence is at a lack

The fight is getting harder
To pretend that all is good
The years are crawling in
It’s time to be understood

I just can’t go on pretending
That everything is alright
The signs of hurt, is there to see
This is my darkest night

This smile won’t last forever
It’s going to show its flaw
I’m sick and tired of lying
I can’t do this anymore

I can't go on with make believe
That love will come my way
Because the signs of hurt within
Will show through and start to sway

My porcelain smile is nearly gone
It's going to break me in two
The tears are slowly building
My feelings I can’t construe

So if my destiny is loneliness
And the pipers playing his song
I will readjust my porcelain smile
I can’t go on pretending I’m strong

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
