The Face Behind The Mask

written by Gary John R

 

 

I wear this mask to hide my face

to hide my past of which I hate

my heart still bleeds and I don't know why

the bitter sting of tears of which I cry

 

I wear this mask so no one can see

all the hurt inside of me

oh why was I so afraid

of all the lies I felt betrayed

 

the darkness hides my lonely heart

I cry with the night for the love I lost

I wear this mask to hide my fears

there is no one to dry my tears

at night I dance but not alone

there is a demon that captured my soul

 

dark clouds fall from a angry sky

knowing love was my only crime

sometimes we all have to sacrifice

in my world love shines no light

 

on the floor a mirror of broken glass

a bleeding heart from a wounded past

maybe if I were made of stone

then I could watch my blood run cold

 

an angel whispers but I don't hear

she tells me I have nothing to fear

should I face one final storm

to try again once more

I close my eyes but I can't sleep
for my nightmares keep on haunting me

I gave up hope a long time ago

I lost in love and that is all I know

I have no heart,I no longer feel

and without love,nothing is real

 

of those who choose to laugh at me
it matters not what they believe

they know nothing of love and live with hate

the lies they carry to there shallow graves

 

there is a face behind the mask

it hides my pain it hides my past

I have no soul

I have no heart

no one to hold in my arms

only a face of which I blame

to carry the scars of all my shame

I have no name so please don't ask

I am the face behind the mask

 

find me a smile so I never have to cry

find those three words

your heart could never find

a tear for the rain

don't let love hurt me again

 

you left me with nothing but a bitter taste

the anger inside me that turned to hate

if it's not meant to be then it must be fate

that's why I wear this mask

to hide my pitiful face

 

 

I wear this mask to hide my pain

to hide my past of which I hate

I have no heart,I'm unfulfilled

the tears I cry is how I feel

I wear this mask am I ashamed

was I the one who took the blame

love never dies or so they say

I called your name but you never came

and was it all to much to ask

am I just a face that hides behind a mask

 

you look so sad have you been crying

is your heart slowly dying

you should not be standing in the rain

hoping your tears will wash away

 

can you feel me

you are not alone

I am here wishing you were here to hold

can you forgive me

was I so wrong

do you believe me

when I say I'm not so strong

 

remove this mask so I can see

give me a reason to believe

there is love still inside of me

just one kiss and I shall slowly start to breathe
