What keeps me from being who I am
It's nothing but the fear of judgement
What (who) will I lose if I dare to expose myself
As the person that I know I am inside.
How many of my friends would pick up and leave
If I showed them the hurting, scared, broken person
That I am hiding behind the curtain?
Coming out of the closet
Or out from behind the curtain
It's all the same really
And it's the consequences that I fear the most
My family and friends would pick up and leave
"We still love you" would side from their lips
But does that matter when the looks are condemning?
Sometimes I'm not even sure that I know
Exactly who the person behind the curtain is anymore
Tucked behind the curtain for seven years
Does anyone even know that I'm not me anymore?
