Lyrics

Real Me

Written By: Dennis Sy

People like to think that life is fair
You laugh at my misfortunes…but I don’t care
Even though I break the mold…I cry to see
There’s a little bit of me in you, and you in me

I may not be the person who has it all
Something’s always missing…it ain’t my fault
I know I don’t look the part but I play it well
Chances are you’ll see it …I know it’s there

Chorus:

I’ll just cast my stones in the water
I’ll just set my sails out to sea
I will build my sandy castles for all to see
That’s the real me

I see it in their faces…I see it in their eyes
The door is slamming in my face with half a foot inside
It’s a pity that you fail to see all the good in me
Casting every shadow that’s hard to see

I sure am not the person who has it all
Something’s always missing…that’s just the way it goes
I don’t have to look the part to play it well
It doesn’t matter anymore…I know it’s there

BRIDGE:

I’ve cried out…sold out
Wanting to belong
But somehow amongst you
Still feel I’m so alone

I’m burnt out…tossed out all that I believe
Found myself longing and wanting to be me
