BLIND?

I find myself face to face,
With all my worst fears.
Loneliness and insecurities,
That fill up the scariest of years.

Do I leap out and trust so blindly?
And expect someone to catch my fall?
Do I let out what’s inside me?
And hope I make it through it all?

Chorus:

You can’t see who I am
You don’t know who you are
You paint in black and white
You’ll never know the tears I’ve cried
That’s because you are blind

Verse 2:

Assuming you think that you know me,
Could be the worst mistake of all time.
Because I don’t even know myself,
So I’ll smile and pretend I am fine.

Let my humor be a shield from hurt,
And a way to make it through the day.
A shelter for all my daily pain,
And convince myself that I’ll be okay.

Bridge:

My soul is longing for more,
My hurt is my only friend ,
My mistakes I’ve known before,
My death will be the end.
Because you were blind.
