Let me introduce myself
I'm a woman that you've never seen
You might know me from somewhere else
As someone that I've never been.

I gave everything to play the game
My soul fell apart at the seams 
I fell down like a house of cards 
When somebody pulled the queen.

'Cause you could spend your life
Lookin' for your own reflection 
Time could blur the lines  Between what's real and what's projected 
Had I known what I lost?
What I gained, what it'd cost
I'd still give what remains 
To be myself again.

You must believe me when I say
Don't live someone else's design 
Turn it around like a photograph 
The writings been there all the time.

Now you can have all these hopes and dreams 
The ones I can't use anymore 
I don't know what it is you lost
But I hope you got what you came for.


 Sometimes I want to leave right now
 Sometimes I want to cry out loud
I want to let it all hang out
But I don't want to let you down.

 Sometimes I want to just lay here
 Sometimes I want to disappear 
I want to show you all my fear
But I don't want to let you down.


To be myself again...
