Face


To face the day
Talk face to face
Everyone wants to save face

To save face or to save their face
As time goes by the latter takes place
What used to shine now starts to fade
Now I think my face has to be made

My face greets you what do you see
Do I look happy, do you see me
My face today, my face tomorrow
Can you tell when my face shows sorrow

My face greets me what do I see
Do I see time passing or do I see me
Mommy mommy come and play
My face I'll leave for another day

And a wide realm of wild reality,
