Tears, streaming down my face
Insecurities, flooding my mind
The clock is counting down; Life's a race
Of the confidence we're trying to find.
I show you a happy smile; an open embrace
A front that no one can see
Then I shut down and leave no trace
Of this girl I've portrayed as "me"
My mind is full of unused space
The rest is full of fear
I act happy, but that's not the case
It's just that no one seems to hear
I don't want to hide behind masks of lace
But I don't want anyone to see
Behind this facade of towering waste
