Beneath the exterior inside is me Transparent,
although, perhaps you can't see
I live, I breathe, I laugh, I cry
Tears give way to my humble disguise.
You see me and you say "hello"
Then off to quickly you do go.
You smile and say "I'll see you soon"
But as you leave I'm filled with gloom
You didn't look you didn't see
The heart and soul inside of me.
Like a book without a cover
Left unread and undiscovered
A best seller I could be
If you would take the time to see
That true beauty is within
This woman whom you call a friend.
She wears her heart upon her sleeve
And in love she does believe
Take another look and see
The true love that's within me.
I can be your lover I can be your friend
I can provide for you A love time transcends
All I ask is that you see
What lies beneath the exterior me.
