lyrics

Masked © R L Fountain 2017

We were all invited
But me and my self were undecided
If we were going up or down
Or take the road that’s round and round
Thought I tried to fight it
Me myself and I we would always stand divided
If we can’t find common ground
We’ll be stuck in this old town

You were right about a change I didn’t listen anyway
I was stuck inside my head its safer there than what’s instead
All the tales that we were told bout growing up and getting bold
They’re just shadows in the light, I lift my voice up to the night

If freedom was a mask and I wore it, I’d do everything to make it fit
Front up like I’m someone else
Maybe I’m afraid to be all this, there’s a part of me that’s up for it
Be my one and only self
Chasing dragons

Lost my mind cant find it
So I remember where the last place was I used it
Dark corners are a place to hide
There ain’t no shadows in the night
So I sing la la la la la la
And there’s the note that makes the sound come out all shy I get all caught up in
my throat but that’s just fine the more I sing I make it mine


Well you were right about a change I didn’t listen anyway
I get stuck inside my head its safer there, its safer there
All the tales that we were told bout growing up and feeling bold
They’re just shadows in the night, I lift my voice up to the light

If freedom was a mask and I wore it, I’d do everything to make it fit
Front up like I’m someone else
Maybe I’m afraid to be all this, there’s a part of me that’s up for it
Be my one and only self

Seasons change nothing ever stays the same
You raise your roar yeah I’ve seen it all before
I wont stand in my way I will shed my skin and be new again
Spread your wings and you will soar
We can face this storm

If freedom was a mask and I wore it, I’d do everything to make it fit
Front up like I’m someone else
Maybe I’m afraid to be all this, there’s a part of me that’s up for it
Be my one and only self
Facing dragons
