Foolish heart looks like we're here again
Same old game of plastic smile
Don't let anybody in
Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
How much will they take before I'm empty
Do I let it show, does anybody know?

[Chorus]
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Reveal me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Oh, cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask
Self-inflicted circus clown
I'm tired of the song and dance
Living a charade, always on parade
What a mess I've made of my existence
But you love me even now
And still I see somehow

[Chorus]

Shadows of shattered dreams
They followed me
They haunted me
But you've taken the broken pieces of my life
And help me to believe

[Chorus]
