Hid Away

I’ve hid away well enough
you’d never know to look
beneath this colorful shell
smiles still put you at ease

I’ve been faking from the start
a brilliant performance
if I do say so myself
you bought all my cheerfulness

but I’m still the one who
craves the dangerous waves
dark and untamed swells
that may just be the end of me

I’ve hid away well enough
but it’s time to stop pretending
I could never fully give you my heart
you only wanted the part that shone
