  • Foolish heart looks like we're here again
    Same old game of plastic smile
    Don't let anybody in
    Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
    How much will they take before I'm empty
    Do I let it show, does anybody know?

    But you see the real me
    Hiding in my skin, broken from within
    Reveal me completely
    I'm loosening my grasp
    There's no need to mask my frailty
    Oh, cause you see the real me

    Painted on, life is behind a mask
    Self-inflicted circus clown
    I'm tired of the song and dance
    Living a charade, always on parade
    What a mess I've made of my existence
    But you love me even now
    And still I see somehow


    Shadows of shattered dreams
    They followed me
    They haunted me
    But you've taken the broken pieces of my life
    And help me to believe

    [Chorus] Writer/s: NATALIE GRANT
