All I want is someone who understands
Who see what lies inside.
All I want is someone who cares
Enough to try to find
The depth inside
My caring, thoughtful soul.
But instead, all they see
Is what they think they know.

I cannot make eyeglasses
Strong enough to show
That there is more beneath my mask
More than what they know.

All I want is someone to hold me
Whose arms will keep me secure.
All I want is someone devoted
Whose heart and love is pure
Enough to fend off
The darkness inside
My lonely, tortured soul.
But instead, all they see
Is what they think they know.

I cannot make a magnifying glass
Strong enough to show
That there is more beneath my mask
More than what they know.

All I want is someone to love me
Who knows me for what I have become.
All I want is someone who believes in me
Who shines in my life like the sun
Enough to dispel
The bleakness inside
My hollow, empty soul.
But instead, all they see
Is what they think they know.

I cannot make a looking glass
Clear enough to show
That there is more to me and less to them
Than what they think they know.
