Underneath My MaskMature

Underneath My Mask  31/5/2013

So you want to know the deeper me?
Want to see under the big old shield?
I can't see any reason or rhyme
For your insistence dear

But you push forward
Claiming it'll be fine
Heed my warning
You'll regret it in time

'Cause underneath my mask
There's a storm I can't begin to break
Oh
The clouds keep on building
And my heart keeps on whirling
Emotions out of control
Rainfall drowning my soul

So you think you know me now?
Fancy words can never describe
How overwhelming everything can be

Have you ever tried so hard?
To make everyone happy?
It's a strain
Such a pain
But I can't seem to give it up

'Cause underneath my mask
There's a storm I can't begin to break
Oh
The clouds keep on building
And my heart keeps on whirling
Emotions out of control
Rainfall drowning my soul

But I smile
I act just fine
'Cause I know
Where's the use in sharing that?
'Cause we're only humans
Our emotions are flawed
They come and they go
As fleeting as love

'Cause underneath my mask
At the eye of the storm
There's a scared little girl
And she's not ready to face it all
She's hidden away too long
Now you showering her with love

She needs to adjust
So for now I plead
Just hold my hand

The End
