I keep my paintbrush with me

Wherever I may go,

In case I need to cover up

So the real me doesn't show.

I'm so afraid to show you me,

Afraid of what you'll do - that

you might laugh or say mean things,

I'm afraid I might lose you.


I'd like to remove all my paint coats

To show you the real, true me,

But I need you to try and understand,

I need you to accept what you see.

So you'll need to be patient and close your eyes,

I'll ***** off my coats real slow.

Please understand how much it hurts

To let the real me show.


Now my coats are all ******** off.

I feel naked, bare and cold,

And if you still love me with all that you see,

You are my friend, pure as gold.

I need to save my paintbrush, though,

And hold it in my hand,

I want to keep it handy

In case somebody doesn't understand.


So please protect me, my dear friend

And thanks for loving me true,

But pease let me keep my paintbrush with me,

Until I love me too.
