Different Than I Seem


I'm not what I seem 

I seem like I don't like people 

the truth is I love people

I've just been hurt by the ones 

I've let too far in 

I seem as though I'm harsh and critical when

the truth is I have the most compassion 

as anyone has to offer but many have taken advantage 

I seem as though I don't care what people say 

the truth is I take everything to heart until I explode 

I seem as though I'm distant and cruel 

the truth I'm one of the sweetest people you'll ever met

but when I show that part of me people choose to walk 

over me 

See if you get to know the real me you'll find I'm nothing like I
