Adorned, I hide my face
Inside this mask of blue
Silver painted, decorated
To keep myself from view

Where no one knows about me
Or wonders who I am
I’ll blend in, pretend again
When I’m really just a sham

You once stood by my side
Unmasked and unafraid
I didn’t learn, and now I yearn
Twas you that I betrayed

In the mirror, my reflection
Glances back at me, I sigh
For my eyes can see, in reality
I’m the one who said goodbye
