When you're lookin at me
What do you see?
Who are you really lookin at?
Do you see the girl I was
Or the woman I've become?
Are you lookin at my face?
Are you lookin at my body?
Are you lookin at my mind and at my soul?
Are you lookin at me
Or are you lookin
At Me?

Do you see the girl so young?
Well that girl is gone.
She saw too much that was wrong
So she had to grow strong
To survive this long
She was broken into twisted shards
So she had to be hard
She's recovered but forever scarred
She used to be Me,
but now she's part
Of Me.

Do you see the woman who cried
And the woman who lied
And the woman who clung to her broken pride?
Do you see the woman who lost
At every turn
Do you see her struggle on
When hope had gone?
Do you see how evrything was wrong?
At one time she was Me
But now she's part
Of Me

Are you lookin at the face
Of someone who found her place
Somewhere she could be herself without disgrace?
Do you see how I
Found out who I'd become?
Do you see my troubled past
How I found a place at last
Accepted without question and no longer downcast?
Are you lookin at me?
Or are you lookin
At me?

Tell me my friend, who are you lookin at?

Tell me my friend, who do you see?
