Thinking about the path we've been on, I know we learned a lot of things.
Searching through the pages of our history to see what my memory brings to me.
It doesn't matter the lies we tell. Our insecurities we hide so well.
A revolution based on honesty, but it won't matter till you see me for me.
My mind's been racing, but I don't think you've heard.
What I'm trying to tell you my emotions are so blurred.
Please, please don't give up on me.
I hope you can see that I'm...
[Chorus:] so afraid to be myself and speak my mind.
I'm so scared that you won't like what you might find.
Time keeps wasting while I look away
Never realizing the truth that I've locked away.
I made a promise to myself that I would one day keep.
To find the courage and the strength and in myself believe.
Please, please don't give up on me. I just hope you can see. Go!
The truth is not always easy and it's so hard to please.
Hoping that you'll understand that's the price you pay for honesty. [Chorus:]
Time keeps wasting away, but that's the price you pay for honesty.
And it won't matter the lies we tell. Our insecurities we hide so well.
A revolution based on honesty, but it won't matter until you see me for me.
