If only mirrors could show me 
Who I truly am inside,
If they could be the doors
Into my perfect, dream-world life,
I could just be myself 
And would never have to hide.

I would know where to go,
What path to take,
I would be sure 'bout what I do 
From the moment that I wake.

No chains could tie me down,
No expectations hold me back.
I would just go into the world
And be sure to make a change.

If only I wasn't so unsure,
If only there wasn't all this fear,
If it weren't for the pressure,
It'd be so much easier.

But I know: 
It wouldn't be my life
If it was easy
And it wouldn't be me
Without my share of misery.
