Band-aid Smiles

These are lyrics that I wrote to a song back in 2011. I think it's pretty self explanatory so I won't go into much explanation about it. Honestly, I mostly just remember being really sad when I wrote it. I always just heard the sound of the acoustic guitar being the only instrument to support the song. Hopefully someday I can make this song come fully to life. For now, here are the lyrics:

Band-aid Smiles

I smile everyday & everyone sees it

It doesn’t have to be genuine to be pleasing

Cuts & wounds can never be seen

Is it faking if you pretend it’s a dream?


Band-aid smiles

We’ve all had them

The world is cold so we have to grab them

Blanket dreams

Are now all nightmares

Teddy bears & sugar canes are no longer here



That little girl with the ribbons in her hair

It was so black & white

Now there’s color everywhere

The red is so blinding & the pink is too sweet

I’m hoping someday we’d collide on a two way street


Life is passion & love is fear


What I would give for you to stay here

I’m running out of band-aids

No more bandages for the damages…



Band-aid smiles

We’ve all had them

The world is cold so we have to grab them

Blanket dreams

Are now all nightmares

Teddy bears & sugar canes are no longer here
