Things are not always what they appear to be
Beneath the calm exterior
There can be a soul on fire

Truth is not always what the eyes can see
The smile upon our faces
Can disguise our pain and hide the traces


*Sometimes the rock that we depend on
Melts into the ground and disappears
The one thing you thought was forever
Slowly washed away by all the tears


**If I gotta be true to no other
I gotta be true to myself


Raise up your head now so the world can see
You have the inner vision
Though the fight is far from over

You've got to battle with it endlessly
Before life becomes a rumour
A sudden risin' tide that pulls you under

(repeat *, **)

(True to myself)...
(True to myself)...

If I'm gonna make it come tomorrow
(True to myself)
Hallowed be the voice of constant sorrow
(True to myself)
Gotta climb the ladder if I'm able
(True to myself)
I can't keep this shining light under the table, my love
(True to myself)
I wanna be, I gotta be true to myself, hey, hey…
(True to myself)
