Mask

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me

They think they know me

I know they don’t

They only know the girl with no hurt

The girl who is happy and carefree

They don’t see the girl with the death wish,

The girl that is me.

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me

The girl with the pigtails and the carefree laugh

Who was loved by her parents and all that past

Who could be true to herself and not care what other thought,

And didn’t have to worry about hiding and not getting caught

With all her secrets and troubles

With the darkness that’s eating away at her heart.

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me

Because I’m not her and she’s not me

I am not who I used to be

I am not the girl who smiles and laughs

I am just a girl behind a mask

My mind is dark

My heart is dead

And all that surrounds me is fear and dread

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me

I wear the mask so they can’t see

How broken I am, the real me

The me who cries herself to sleep

The me who fights her own emotions to stay alive

So I keep it under lock and key

Hide the girl that is me

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me

The girl who hides the abuse

And doesn’t eat

The girl who doesn’t even know who she is anymore

The girl that is me

The girl who tries so hard to be perfect

But knows she can’t

The girl who is drowning but no one knows

Because no one see’s the girl that is me

Wear the mask

Don’t let them see

Hang the girl who used to be me.
