Cease your focus on me I am insecure about what you see Keeping your gaze, my skin crawls I am afraid you will grasp my flaws Anxious that you might not like what you view My flaws, you have only noticed a few Will you note the truth in my eyes? Will you notice all the lies? I keep asking myself the same question Will you insist on a honest confession? I beg you to break off your glare This I no longer can bare Your beautiful eyes making me endure this Starring at my lips as if yearning for a kiss? Taking all this emotion in Only this time you will win I considering looking to the other side Only with you I can never truely hide I know those eyes mean no harm Yet inside I am on like am alarm So nervous my heart skips a beat So hard to breath my head fills with heat I desperately need you to look away I am afraid youll see the real me someday
