When I ‘m Finally Bare

You told me to undress

I said, “I don’t know how,

as my walls are soo high,

I cannot reach around


I’ll start with my buttons –

And go brick by brick

I know it will be hard,

Cause I’ve built it up thick


I am sorry for wasting

So much of your time

But how can I see your heart

When I can’t even see mine?


I will talk about life,

of love, and of laughter,

Rhyme on the feeling of never getting

What I’ve been after


I will cry over reasons

That you’ll never find out

Even I never really know

What I’m smiling about


There will come a time

When I know you will no longer care

Because no one ever stays

When I am finally bare.
