Who is the person behind the mask?
The reticent smile shadowed by fake happiness.
The person you want me to see, not the person you really are
Beauty and success on the outside, emptiness and bitterness inside
You wear the mask well, but I can tell, because I, too, cover my ugliness
Afraid of what they’d think if they saw your scars, You paint a smile and play the part
You think you know, but you’re not fooling me, it’s easy to tell because I can see
We’re all hiding behind the mask that covers our vulnerabilities
But the One who made us knows what made you you and made me me
We can’t hide forever
