And his smile was simply the sweetest delight,
But inside he was as hollow as an abandoned casket,
As meaningless as the sky on a starless night,
It’s the saddest thing a person could be,

A fascinating cover with nothing to read,
A spectacular scenery with nothing to see,
It’s the most tragic thing to reveal,
Someone who knows how to touch, but never learnt how to feel.[/tab]
