Seems the only one who doesn't see your beauty
Is the face in the mirror looking back at you
You walk around here thinking you're not pretty
But that's not true, cause I know you...

Why, Katniss? Why can't you see how beautiful you are? Why do you keep on thinking that each time you look into a mirror? Why can't you just see? You walk around the district and wave off every compliment people tell you. "You look nice today." "No I don't.", "Nice Clothes." "They're what I usually wear.", "You look pretty today." "I don't. This is how I usually look." But what you say isn't always true. I know you, Katniss. You're always beautiful, no matter what you say.

Hold on, baby, you're losing it
The water's high, you're jumping into it
And letting go... and no one knows

Hold on, don't let that get into you're head. You're about to burst and no one knows. You're about to let go but no one is aware of that.

That you cry, but you don't tell anyone
That you might not be the golden one
And you're tied together with a smile
But you're coming undone

I see you cry in an alley sometimes. But you never tell anyone so I kept to myself. You might not be perfect but you are to me. You're tied together with a smile, but you don't smile that much anymore. You're tied together with a smile but it doesn't show cause you're coming undone.

I guess it's true that love was all you wanted
Cause you're giving it away like it's extra change
Hoping it will end up in his pocket
But he leaves you out like a penny in the rain

Oh, cause it's not his price to pay
Not his price to pay...

Gale, I know that you're after Katniss. You're laying it on thick around her. You hope that she will get it and will come running into your arms. But she leaves you out like the entrails of the animals she shoots. You're her best friend and all, but can't you see that she's not interested? It's not what she feels. Not at all.

Hold on, baby, you're losing it
The water's high, you're jumping into it
And letting go... and no one knows
That you cry, but you don't tell anyone
That you might not be the golden one
And you're tied together with a smile
But you're coming undone

You're tied together with a smile
But you're coming undone... oh
Goodbye, baby
With a smile, baby, baby

Katniss, I know that you'll eventually go out with Gale. So I'm saying goodbye in advance. I don't want to force you into a relationship that you don't want. And you barely know me. So I'll just walk away. I'll just say goodbye and try to move on. Although I know that I'll never forget you. Goodbye, Katniss. Smile for me please, because I'm smiling for you now and will always smile for you.


Hey guys! I know that I said that I might update RUC today. But I didn't really feel like it. I wanted to write something canon today. Sorry guys.

So, the song is 'Tied Together With a Smile' by Taylor Swift. As I said in the summary. I'm a HUGE Swiftie. Deal with it. If you haven't listened to this song yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! GO TO YOUTUBE NOW!

Obviously, this takes place before the 74th Hunger Games.

This is my first songfic. Please tell me if I did good or bad. And if I could fix some parts. Eventually, I'll repost the revised version in a second chap. But for now, it's complete.

What brought this up is that I was looking for these, but found none. So I thought, "Hey, if you can't find it, do it yourself."

And of course, Disclaimer: THG belongs to Suzanne Collins and the song belongs to Taylor Swift.

Please review!
