Anyone else but me

Donít reveal your eyes,

Dawn them in a disguise,

Hold your head down,

But donít frown

Smile because thatís only what the world expects.

Be true, be kind, be yourself

And watch it thrown back

Let your character haunt you

Let the glass smash

And watch your world crash

As the you thatís you is unaccepted

And the you thatís someone else is impossible to keep up.

Whatís beauty because I canít see the light?

Whatís what people want Ė because nothing Iím doing is right?

Can I become strong Ė I donít need anyone else

But I canít become strong when I donít accept myself.

Iím wavering in this dark place

Iím bemused by my own face

You wonít let me be

And I donít know how to be anyone else but me.
