I’ve got something to say

I’ve got something to say
I thought things were okay
But this outward display
Had to rupture some day

See, there’s three people in me
There’s the person that you see
And the person inside me
And the person I want to be

But it’s hard to conceal
The gaps as they’re revealed
It’s the way that I feel
It’s the me that is real

I thought I had to comply
With what I want to defy
So I stayed on standby
While things just scraped by

There’s no other way to allay
The pain and dismay
I never planned it this way
I‘ve got something to say
