Locked Up - Lyrics

Why are you looking down
At the ground below you
When you could be looking up at the sky
Up above you

Not a cloud in sight
You put your hood up
To keep it all inside

And I would never want somebody
To frown on a perfect day
And I have never known somebody
Who preferred it that way

'Cause when you're locked up now
You write a story about it
And it's painted on your face with your tears
But when you walk outside
You wear a mask over all of it, but
Darling you don't need to fear

'Cause with a face like that
And a heart that matches it
Well there's beauty inside and out
Yeah the world is loud
So all you need to do is shout

Hello, how are you doing?
I'm asking 'cause I've got nothing else to say
So how has life been treating you?
I think that that answer is overdue

Because I would never want somebody
To frown on a perfect day
Yes, I have never known somebody
Who preferred it that way

'Cause when you're locked up now
You write a story about it
And it's painted on your face with your tears
But when you walk outside
You wear a mask over all of it, but
Darling you don't need to fear

'Cause with a face like that
And a heart that matches it
Well there's beauty inside and out
Yeah the world is loud
So all you need to do is shout

Oh you had it, you lost it
Don't let it tear you down
All the weight on your shoulders
Can be lifted with a sound

All you need to do is shout
Oh you just need to let it out
All you need to do is

When you're locked up now
You write a story about it
And it's painted on your face with your tears
But when you walk outside
You wear a mask over all of it, but
Darling you don't need to fear

'Cause with a face like that
And a heart that matches it
Well there's beauty inside and out
Yeah the world is loud
So all you need to do is shout
