If I Shed My Mask…

Would you even know who I am

You’ve held me each day

Wrapped me in your arms

And kissed me goodnight

But still I wonder

If I Shed My Mask…

Would you look past my scars

Would you love me for me

Would you defend my honor


Would you just say goodbye

And make me cry?

Because a criminal stole my


And left me hiding behind a mask

That barely covers my scars

If I Shed My Mask…

My love will remain grounded

I will have no fear

And will live in the clear

For where there is no shame

There is a clear sense of justice

That again makes me whole

And my happiness will prevail once more
