Being Me

 

There have been many masks I’ve worn,

so many roles that I have played,

but now I’m tired of the pretence,

the false impressions I have made.

 

It’s become such a burden of exhaustion

and it’s just too much of a strain

to keep on hiding all my thoughts away

I’m letting the fictitious me just drain.

 

But it’s only with you I can be myself

without becoming a victim of fun,

too many years of just playing along

just will not be undone.

 

No one but you does understand

all the things that I’m going through,

so please don’t turn your back on me

I’d be lost now without you.

 

If I feel I’m drowning deep

you will stretch out your hand

and you will bring me back to shore,

you’ll put me on dry land.

 

Or is this really nonsense

do you see me as a joke,

an inconsequential nuisance

who really has no hope?

 

I guess I’ll really never know

and maybe that’s for the best --

let me go on thinking to myself

that you really are the best.
