I hide because I’m shy
I’m shy because I don’t know you
But why do you hide?
Why are you so shy?


Where’s the guilt?
Where’s the happiness?
Where’s the sadness?
It’s all in the face and eyes


I hide because of the guilt
I hide because of the happiness
I hide because of the sadness
It’s all in my eyes


My eyes dim with guilt
My eyes sparkle with happiness
My eyes shimmer with sadness
What do your eyes do?


I see your eyes move with guilt
I see your eyes gleam with happiness
I see your eyes die with sadness
What do you see in my eyes?


I hide to cover the guilt
I hide to cover the happiness
I hide to cover the sadness
No eyes, no emotion


I know why I hide
Why do you hide?
