Drop the smile.
Drop the act.
This is me.
No turning back.

I am brave, no longer afraid
Of any enemy.
They can’t keep me down.
Can’t keep me from being me.

At last I’m strong.
At last I’m free.
Now I can show the world
Who I’m meant to be.

Drop the smile.
Drop the act.
This is me.
No turning back.

The world’s a stage.
It’s my debut.
The first showing of
The me that’s true.

Don’t care who laughs.
Don’t care who stares.
They can do their worst.
Bring it on I’ll dare!

Drop the smile.
Drop the act.
This is me.
No turning back.

I’m not somebody else.
There’s no way I have perfection.
I’m only me
The smile in the reflection.

No more acting.
I can’t pretend any longer.
Being someone that I’m not
Can’t make anyone stronger.

Drop the smile.
Drop the act.
This is me.
No turning back.

I feel joyous and giddy
And so blissfully free
Now that I’m at ease
With the person I know to be me.

I can and I will show and teach the world
How to free themselves from their bonds someday.
No more acting, no deceit, and no more lies.
We are who are and we’re fine that way.

Drop the smile.
Drop the act.
This is me.
No turning back.
