I'm not who you think I am.
I'm not the girl that everyone sees in the spotlight.
You don't want me.
Not when you see who I really am.
Don't pick me.
I'm not me.

Everyday is a simple day,

In the life of the masked image,

But behind the scenes,

You would never believe.

 

.

 

In the spotlight she’s a queen,

Her pampered self a high rank in the royalty,

But after the curtains close,

Just wait and see.

 

.

 

Her hair a shimmering blond,

Her eyes a glistening amber,

A perfect life in the eyes of her peers,

But a disaster when reflected in the mirror.

 

.

 

She’s like a celebrity behind closed doors,

A masterpiece hung on the great walls,

And all he sees is that piece of art,

And thinks that he understands her heart and soul.

 

.

 

But little does he know,

That her heart is broken,

That those shards of glass pierced her,

And inside she bleeds to no end.

 

.

 

But little does he know,

That her soul has been put in flames,

That all those times she’s made a mistake,

Inside she breaks into a million pieces.

 

.

 

In only the blue light can you truly see,

The catastrophe behind the masterpiece,

In only the blue light can you truly see,

The girl who bleeds eternally.

.

 

He doesn’t realize the hope he gives her,

How he mends her back together, piece by piece,

And how maybe once she’s fully repaired,

She’ll be who everyone thinks she is.

 

.

 

But one day he just can’t help himself,

And after the show opens the curtains,

And everyone in the audience turns to see,

The girl they thought was different.

 

.

 

Displayed is her broken heart,

Her flaming soul,

Her tears that run with no end,

And the mistake that she became.

 

.

 

But she is welcomed with no surprise,

And most by the boy she thought would throw her away the most,

This piece of trash she thought she was,

Was just what everyone knew was behind the mask.
