Can I stay a mystery, yet be known?
Can we be together, but stay alone?
Is it too much to ask- to be famous, yet remain unknown?
To be a wanderer, yet have a home?
My insecurities sometimes make me sick,
But my confidence makes me thick.
Can I be harmless, yet wield a stick?
Be completely smooth, but have a nick?
Can I live inside a lie, yet still be true?
Can I be unique, yet remain so much like you?
Let go of all control, but still know what to do?
Can I be ugly... and beautiful still too?
Should I be an authentic, true and pure me,
Even at the expense of friends and family?
If I bare the darkest parts of my soul for you to see,
Can you promise that you will still love me?
