And i don't want the world to see me,
'Cause i don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.
I love this song. It's one of my favorites. At the time, I couldn't understand how this song had anything to do about me. I had to ask why. She replied, "Brian, you just want people to know you are." I saw some truth in that, but didn't think about it much, so I just continued with the game.
As time goes by, I can see more and more how these lyrics are about me.. I have a fear of letting people see the real me. Do I try to hide who I am or be deceptive of who I am? Definitely not. I even got some input concerning me this week. I live behind a shell. A soft shell, my friend says. I can't argue with that.
Here's what I ask of you: Stick with me until I can break though my shell. If you get tired of waiting, break it for me. The truth is, although I'm scared, I just want you to know me.
