IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME

IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME
THEN THEY WOULDN’T GIVE ME LOOKS
LIKE OH MY GOSH WHY IS SHE DRESSED THAT WAY,
WHY SHE NEVER HAVE A DECENT HAIRSTYLE
OR WHY SHE NEVER WEAR PANTS


IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME
THEN THEY WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT QUOTE
DON’T EVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
CAUSE IT’S WHAT I LIVE BY

IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME
THEN THEY WOULD KNOW
THE CLOTHING I WEAR, THE SHOES I BUY
AND THE JEWLERY I DON’T WEAR
DOESN’T MAKE ME

IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME
THEY WOULD SEE A REGULAR HUMAN BEING.
I COULD WALK THE WALK
AND TALK THE TALK
BUT I CHOSE NOT TO.

IF PEOPLE REALLY KNEW ME
PEOPLE WOULD KNOW THAT I LOVE BEING TALKED ABOUT
BECAUSE IT MOTIVATES ME
AND STIMULATES ME
IT MAKES ME WHO I AM TODAY
