A smile so brilliant
I know it catches your eye
your lips curve back with a reply
but I sense the dark thoughts
looming behind your bright smile
I'm not naïve
my smile is just a façade too
behind this brilliant flash
my mind is busily plotting

A look so compassionate and understanding
I know it makes me look so innocent
you think I can be easily led
I sense the opportunist in you
no, I'm not naïve
this is just my human face
behind this lovely profile
there is a devil eyeing you

I try my best
to treat you with my best possible self
But the moment I smell your wickedness
the witch in me awakens
she roars her battle cry
well, what can I do?
"hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"
