A darkness had come over me,
but if you looked you could not see,
the pain I hid deep in my eyes,
covered well by all my lies.
You looked at me and thought you saw,
but in truth, didn't know at all,
what caused the looks, the lies, the tears,
what caused the hiding and the fears.
You never figured, you never knew,
what caused the pain and tears was you.
So weak and frail I was inside,
I let you force the real me to hide.
But I'm stronger than you are now,
You know it's true but don't know how
I've overcome the fear of myself.
And have discovered an unknown wealth,
the knowledge of who I always was,
to the surface it starts to buzz.
I love ME now, you're in the past,
I've put me first, I've put you last.
