Why did I ever let you in
Is this some game
You’ve been trying to win

I opened my soul to you
So we could be one
Seems you’re just a mask
Where’s the real you gone

You say you searched the world
For a mind like mine
Now it’s as though
You’ve just wasted my time

Where are you
Where is your heart?
Does it hide behind the mask
You’ve worn from the start

Your mask, your mask
Your only friend
You’ll wear it well
Right through till the end

Your mask, your mask
Will it ever peal away
Or are you happy
To mask your life this way, life this way

One day you’ll surely see
What you masked in yourself
Is alive in me

So you started out
With your game to win
There will be only be winners
Once your mask wears thin, mask wears thin

Where are you
Where is your heart
Does it hide behind the mask
You’ve worn from the start

The Mask

Why do you run
What do you seek
Its the truth within
Making you weak

Looking in your eyes
You tell me they don't lie
Suddenly I realise
You'll always chase your next high

You keep running and running
Till there is nowhere left to go
You reach breaking point
You'll hit your next low
Hit your next low

Your running from something
Only to turn and find
That something your running from
Is your own mind

So keep running and running
Till there's nothing left
Only more pain
And your souls slow death

You could have had it all
What you craved the most
But how could you
Living with your numbing
Making you a ghost

In all of your running
You have lost it all
Nobody could help you
It was always your call

One day you'll stop running
Before its to late
Is this to really be your cruel twist of fate

But for now
You'll keep running
Until there is nowhere to go
You've created your own hell
We reap what we sow

About Me

Bio

I am a 32 year old singer songwriter. Writing has always been part of who I am, I write from the heart and soul and also from personal experience's which we all encounter at some time or another throughout life.

My intention is for my writing to speak to peoples souls, uplift them, inspire them and most of all make them believe that no matter what there is always "hope"!
