If I'm not being me,
Then who AM I being?
If you can't see ME,
Then who ARE you seeing?
When you say "Be yourself"
Is that the REAL ME?
Or simply the one that you want me to be?
Is it your nature to analyse me?
Or have I really lost my identity?
When we first met, how can you tell,
That it was ME that you met and not someone else?
How do you know that you were not deceived?
and seduced by a man masquerading as me?
Perhaps he disguised all my weakness and fear,
and told you the things that you wanted to hear.
Or maybe that was me and I am the fraud.
It can't be denied, It's the truth, I am flawed.
But it's painfully obvious, why can't you see,
That BOTH of these men are a part of me!
and if you love me you'll have to accept,
That there are parts of me that I can't just REJECT.
Whether you love me or not, please understand,
That you can't fall in love with half of a man...
