I Hide


I hide, can you find me?
Among the scattered trinkets
You barley know I'm there
I hide within frozen heart
No one can enter there
I blend in with shadowy tendrils
Discontentment in the air

I hide, can you find me?

Among the quiet lullabies
You might hear me singing too
I can give you something beautiful
But do you want me?
I cry the cry no one hears
The cry that makes no sound
But if your still and silent
You might feel it in the air

I hide, can you find me?

Among the sea of dresses
I hide within a mask
It hides my teeth and claws
No one knows and no one cares
Everyone is faceless
Drowning in their faćade
Even you hide
But I don't mind

I hide, can you find me

Among the stars, I hide
Melted away long ago
My beauty always there
I watch the people stare
I can give you something pretty too
But do you want me?

I hide, can you find me

Among old toys
So long gone from view
I hide with all the broken things
Maybe I'm broken too
I can see you search and look

And maybe you'll find me
And maybe you won't
But I'll be waiting
I hide, can you find me?
