WHAT DO YOU SEE

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Lord, I’m looking in the mirror
But cannot see my face
I see a mask and it looks lonely
Hiding pain, lies and disgrace

Lord, today I’m lost and I’m frightened
Of what’s behind the mask
I open my mouth, no words come out
I don’t know how long this will last

Lord, I’m looking at a shadow
That’s coming from the past
Nobody knows my story
And each day life slips through my grasp

Lord, I’m seeing a strange reflection
It’s a mask that hides my fear
I wear it so nobody notices
When death is drawing near

Lord, I don’t know what I’m seeking
Is this my fate, my destiny
Will I hide behind this mask forever
Feeling cursed for eternity?
