When I look in the mirror
i see a different face
when i look inside
i see a different heart
when i look at you
i see myself
my appearance
different from my heart
my heart
different from my friends
tough exterior
soft interior
i put up an act
I'm not for real
this isn't me
what did i do
i act like a jerk
when I'm really not
i act like a flirt
when I'm really inferior
why, who am i
take off my masks
and show the real me!
