The Monster Inside

I never want you to see
the monster that lives in me
it'd surely tear you apart
before you reached my heart
that'd cause my tears to fall
but the wall would be too tall
I'd try calling your name
but you'd have already taken aim
I'd be shot down again
for the monster that I am
I really won't blame you now
if you break your precious vow
wait, you're crazy can't you see
trying to tame what's come of me
you've seen right through my one disguise
you've embraced what I've tried to hide
you've somehow changed what I have grown into
from claws to applause as I vow to you "I do"
