You think you really know me,
by Coreena Dejesus
However you know what I let you see.
Call it fake, call it self-protection,
Hurt me, no, you won’t get the satisfaction.
You haven’t been in my shoes,
You can’t imagine the battles I lose.
My life isn’t flowers and white picket fences,
Shoot you weren’t in my life I made my own defenses.
Know not my circumstances or where I’m from,
You’ll never understand the hurt already done.
You say you won’t do me wrong,
You say in my life you belong,
You tell me all these nice things,
As soon as I let my guard down the lies begin.
I won’t go there my wall is for a reason,
That’s why I go through relationships like seasons.
The minute you think you really know me,
I’ve already made steps to set you free.
I push you out the door with a kiss goodbye,
Because you won’t hurt this woman if there’s no ties.
The one in the past I fell for,
Is the one I gave my devotion and adored.
Guess what life isn’t roses I received no love back,
Now I’ve built my life on a single track.
When I love I give my all my whole heart,
Not again you won’t get a chance to rip it apart.
Switch up my style and let you believe,
You’ll never know what I have up my sleeve.
Let you fall and you don’t even see,
In the end you still won't know me.
