I wear a mask
Your's I saw hanging in the bedroom
The skin of the person next to me doesn't match his face
Everybody wears a mask
Don't dare deny it

so real it's the truth
so light it's unnoticed
of comfort it's needed
so secure can't live without

My masks are various
some look brand new, others had seen better days
I don't even look in the mirror
Without wearing one

Sometimes I wonder
How do I look underneath layers of masks
I can't remember
The last time I'm not wearing any

I miss my own face
If I shatter this deception
Will it show a face
full of regret?
