Takes My Breath Away

Image result for pic of taking a mask off

Congrats yeah, you made it

Hard work yeah, it paid it

Smarts yeah, you display it

If not, then you fake it

Make life or break life

Everything you do just seems right

But I know that’s not what’s true

I see the things that you do

And the mask you wear

Your disguise

Nobody can look you

In the eyes

Eyes are the window

to the soul

But if you look through

It’s just a hole

But I know that something’s there

No I really do, I swear

But if you cling to that mask,

I promise it won’t disappear

No

So listen

To the verses

Of my heart

As it curses

Duplicity

And falsity

Yeah the lies we hide behind

Put on a fake face

Smile

Even though we’re dead inside our mind

We try to be real

But the problem is we don’t know how that FEELS

No…

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah

 

Don’t roll your eyes, complaining

Life is hard, and your straining

But you’re privileged, daddy’s paying

Know what it’s worth, education?

Don’t make a fuss, just sayin

You don’t deserve to whine, I’m not playing!

Every time you’re wrong

You give me a reason to write this song

No wonder, you’re so fake

Every time, you need a break

From being criticized

Instead being told lies

And played for fools

You just believe whatever you hear

You always do what the world wants you to!

You’re a pawn yeah

In a game

Might get rewarded

With fame

But your name

Is not a name

That isn’t without shame

Yeah

Yeah it’s not without shame

If you’re just a part of the game

Yeah

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah

 

So step up to the plate

You wanna be mediocre?  Or you wanna be great?

Yeah, you wanna be great?

Then listen, my advice

You take this, your life

Quit rolling your eyes and flipping your hair

And shrugging your shoulders like you don’t even care

Yeah, I see you

You think the world, it needs you

Well sorry, I don’t believe you

Your arrogance, that should leave you

You think smart and you talk loud

You’re gonna make daddy so proud

But don’t be living for the crowd

No

Immaturity isn’t allowed

If you wanna grow up

And live free

And be the person you’re meant to be

And change the world for the better

Right down to the last letter

And I’m telling you this

Not to be a lie

You wanna be real?  Give it a try

It’s now or never

Do or die!

Even when you start to cry

It’s better not to be dead: alive!

Ashes will remain

When you finally burn out the pride

But it’ll be worth the pain

If you don’t, then you’ll only ever feign

What could be more

What could be true

And if you don’t

you’ll be the one to blame

Yeah, the one to blame

 

CHORUS

It takes my breath away

The things that you never say

The chances you’ll never take

But who am I to talk anyway?

Yeah

Anyway?

Yeah
