“The Mask” by Hope Smith

(verse 1)

I saw a picture of myself yesterday 

I saw the girl I thought I knew

But when I looked a little closer 

I saw straight through, straight through 

 

(pre chorus) 

Blonde hair, green eyes, false smile 

I wanted to be right back where she was 

Blue coat, black jeans, false smile 

I wish I could go back and stay for a while 

 

(chorus) 

Who am I to know who I am supposed to be 

When I all see is the hurt in me 

When will I be done with this race 

 Because all I feel is the mask on my face 

 

(Verse two) 

I saw myself in the mirror today 

I saw a girl I wasn’t sure I knew 

But when I looked a little closer 

I wasn’t as ashamed at the view 

 

(pre chorus) 

Blonde hair, green eyes, false smile 

I’m not sure I wanna be back where she was 

Blue coat, black jeans, false smile 

I’m not sure I wanna be back there for a while 

 

(chorus) 

Who am I to know who I am supposed to be 

When I all see is the hurt in me 

When will I be done with this race 

 Because all I feel is the mask on my face 

 

(Verse three) 

I see myself for who I am today 

I see a girl I know very well 

When I looked closer 

I saw a girl who no longer wanted to yell 

 

(bridge)

The mask is off 

I feel less pain 

Like a bottle of wine, 

The trauma has aged
