reflection lyrics – jackie evancho

look at me
you may think you see
who i really am
but you’ll never know me
every day
it’s as if i play a part
now i see
if i wear a mask
i can fool the world
but i cannot fool my heart

who is that girl i see
staring straight back at me?
when will my reflection show
who i am inside?

i am now
in a world where i
have to hide my heart
and what i believe in
but somehow
i will show the world
what’s inside my heart
and be loved for who i am

who is that girl i see
staring straight back at me?
why is my reflection
someone i don’t know?
must i pretend that i’m
someone else for all time?
when will my reflection show
who i am inside?

there’s a heart that must be
free to fly
that burns with a need to know
the reason why

why must we all conceal
what we think, how we feel?
must there be a secret me
i’m forced to hide?
i won’t pretend that i’m
someone else for all time
when will my reflection show
who i am inside?
when will my reflection show
who i am inside?
