Every time you look at me I feel another layer of skin peel away And I know it's only a matter of time Until your eyes So deep and blue - I'm drowning - So wise So knowing So curious Begin to peel back the muscle, too Until I'm naught but bone
My clothes that I layer on in fear Are worthless Futile You've seen past my facade and now I've nowhere to hide And I do so wish I could hide
You scare me with what you know You scare me more with what you don't Which is little But I don't know what you feel! Do you feel? You've seen past my walls And my clothes And my skin And my muscle And my bones So you can see my soul But what do you see? My naked body can only be seen By he who has already fallen in love with my naked soul But you've claimed it all
My everything is out in front of you And in this dim light I search your face for some emotion A sign that you DO feel something Anything For this body For this mind For this person you've so meticulously picked apart
But as your eyes finally meet mine All I see is boredom So you turn and slowly leave Me And now I'm left here Still drowning So naked and vulnerable That I cannot move To cover myself back up.
