You never knew me as well as you thought you did You only saw the side I wanted you to see You saw the moon glowing in all her glory Worshiping her more than she deserved You didn't see the dark side The side that didn't deserve praise and flattery That left me with guilt Because you were praising only half of me, thinking it was all of me
You never knew me as well as you thought you did You always expected me to be the happy, bubbly person I could sometimes be You thought something was wrong when I wasn't how you wanted me to be "I'm fine" I say. And I really was. Why can't I have my quieter days? It can be exaughsting to be happy all the time Sometimes I want to be expressionless
There were things I liked that you didn't know about And there are things I have done that you didn't know about If I told you, would you have seen me differently? I know you would.
You never truly knew me You only think you did If I asked you a question about me, would you know the answer? Probably not. You knew what you saw, not the facts You knew the moon glowed bright, but quickly forgot that there are two sides. Just like you forgot that every cycle the moon goes dark. It doesn't glow or shine brilliantly It doesn't bathe you in moonlight and light your path It leaves you blind in a night without shadows, without light
You knew the full moon, you never saw the New Cause if you did, you would have left me alone
About an ex-friend who put me on a pedestal. He thought he knew me better than I know myself. Oh how wrong he was.
