Do you really want to know me?
I mean go deeper than the skin.
Not just my name and where I live,
But what I hold within.
Could you ever get to know me?
My hopes, my dreams, my fears.
Or do you just pretend to care,
When you see my troubled tears.
Would you really try to know me?
Maybe it's not worth your time.
I am much more than what I seem,
It could be an uphill climb.
Should you really get to know me?
It almost seems like too much work.
It's a shame to waste your precious time,
If I turn out to be a jerk.
But if you really got to know me,
What do you think you'd see?
A human being just like you,
Or is that an impossibility?
