What made you so scared?

Does this mean I gave up or I’m simply respecting your wishes?

Because what was there really to give up? You were never mine,

and I liked it that way.

I liked what we had,

it felt genuine and far from serious.

It just was.

And I kind of miss it,

even though it wasn’t much.

And I know trying to replace it isn’t enough, because whatever ‘it’ was felt like it could only be between us.

 

I don’t want that kind of relationship with anyone else.

I want to meet people that won’t just leave me baffled with questions that I’m too afraid to know the answers to.

 

Like what made you so scared?

why wasn't I enough?

I've been scared and scarred before.

 

When lightning struck the desert floor,

Less than 20 feet from me, I thought I was no more.

 

That time in Rio during a motorcycle wreck,

As I tumbled down a cliff screaming, "What the feck?"

 

Or that day I walked out onto the porch,

And the scorpion stung me, burning my foot like a torch.

 

Or all the other times when it should have been the end.

But I guess someone up there really is a good friend.

 

So when you whined "I'm scared" and then left me alone.

I simply shook my head and said, "You wimp, you don't know what fear is,"

And then I deleted your name and number out of everything including my phone.

Trevor Something's "The Real You." Just heard this song for the first time a couple of days ago... and can so relate!

 

Baby, baby you're so cool

But, maybe, maybe that's not you

But, who cares?

Do you care what they say?

And you swear, you swear you're no cliche

Cause you just do what you want and you act so nonchalant

I wish you would share with me everything that you're feeling

And you just hide it all inside

Show me, show me, show me the real you

I don't know why you just won't try

Show me, show me, show me the real you

Baby, baby you're a fool

But, maybe, but, maybe I'm like you

But, who cares?

Do you care what they think?

And you swear, you swear you're just like me

Cause you just do what you want and you act so nonchalant

I wish you would share with me everything that you're feeling

And you just hide it all inside

Show me, show me, show me the real you

I don't know why you just won't try

Show me, show me, show me the real you
