(VERSE ONE)

No one knows just what I feel

They can't see what's in my heart

They only judge by what's outside, but

That's not what is me

(VERSE TWO)

Cause inside I'm a whole different person

My heart, my mind, my soul

They don't know what I feel

And I can't let them in (No)

(Chorus)

I'm afraid of what will happen

If I let the world see

Would they really care about the real me

Or would they prefer to just see my outward shell

Are they content to not really know

Who I am

(VERSE THREE)

I keep my thoughts hidden away

I don't want to be hurt

I want them to know me, but

I'm afraid to take the risk

(VERESE FOUR)

What would they do if I peeled away…

The layers that hide me from the world

Would they stay and talk or would they runaway

I need to know…

(Chorus)

I'm afraid of what will happen

If I let the world see

Would they really care about the real me

Or would they prefer to just see my outward shell

Are they content to not really know

Who I am

(VERSE FIVE)

I want to share my dreams, but

No one will listen

I think it's too late to let them in

I lost the chance, because

I was afraid

(VERSE SIX)

We've grown up and grown apart

We can't go back to that time, when

We used to share all our secrets

And now no one will see the real me, because

(Chorus)

I'm afraid of what will happen

If I let the world see

Would they really care about the real me

Or would they prefer to just see my outward shell

Are they content to not really know

Who I am….Who I am
