I live a life of regret and shame,
And pray to wake with a different name.
To transform myself from every view,
And hope that what I become pleases you.
To wear a smile so ugly and fake,
And wonder what this lie will make.
To walk with you along life's road,
And wonder what the next turn holds.
To be myself and simply perish,
Or be another person you could cherish.
To remember our love as it was before,
And wonder if acting will bring us more.
Can I be myself and keep your heart?
Or will being myself rip us apart?
