about

A song about seeing past people's facades into who they really are.

lyrics

Verse 1
I see people for who they really are.
I see what they’re doing when they’re driving in their car.
Nobody notices me noticing them.
Cause I see people for who they are.

I can see beyond the mask that we all wear.
I can see through all your walls as if they were just air.
Nobody notices me noticing them
cause I can see beyond the mask you try to wear.

Chorus
When I ask how are, you say that you’re fine.
But I can always tell when you are lying.
Like when you try to wear that little smile of yours
to hide the fact that you’ve been crying.

Verse 2
I can the world the way it really is.
I can see beyond what everybody says.
No one can fool me while I’m fooling them.
I can see the world the way it really is.

Everything is clear now, clear as can be.
I can see you now. Can you see me?
Nobody noticed me noticing you.
You are the only face that I can see.

Chorus
When I asked how you were, you said you were fine.
But I can always tell when you are lying.
So let me ask again. How are you doing?
Cause I am dying for you to just let me in.

Bridge
I see you (5x)
Who you really are (4x)

Verse 1
I see people for who they really are.
I see what they’re doing when they’re driving in their car.
Nobody notices me noticing them.
Cause I see people for who they really are.

I can see you (7x). I can see.
