The real me

Look deeply into these blue eyes
Please tell me what you see
Do you see the secrets and lies?
Or do you see just me?

Look behind this wide smile
Kindly tell me what you see
do you see the denial?
Or do you see just me?

Listen to the words I say
Tell me what you hear
Do you hear about my good day?
Or do you hear me loud and clear?

Because these eyes are the opening to this soul of mine
This smile that I share is simply my disguise
and These words that are telling you I'm fine
Are nothing more than perfect lies

You just might be
The only one who can see
The real and honest me
And finally set it free
