Inside Out

Outside lives a guy with a smile that will brighten up the room,
yet inside hides a guy with a frown full of despair.

Outside lives a guy with eyes of joy that brings you to ease,
yet inside hides a guy shedding tears of sadness.

Outside lives a guy with a breathtaking laugh that's contagious,
yet inside hides a guy screaming his lungs out in unwanted anger.

Outside lives a guy with the personality everyone envies,
yet inside hides a guy full of insecurities and shame.

Outside lives a guy who is fearless and tough,
yet inside hides a weak guy who lives in fear.

Outside lives a guy full of life,
yet inside hides a guy full of pain, wanting to die.

Outside lives a guy with a perfect image,
yet inside hides a guy with regrets and mistakes.

Outside lives a guy of innocence,
yet inside hides a guy with tremendous guilt.

Outside lives a guy with goals and aspirations,
yet inside lives a guy lost in confusion.

What you see on the outside is my personal disguise,
What hides underneath you can't even begin to imagine.
