I've lived my life,
By throwing up walls,
That anyone could see...
I've hidden all the passion,
Hidden all the blame,
Hidden everything that makes up me...
It used to seem...
That I was always hiding...

Hiding from the world,
Hiding from the shame,
Hiding from tomorrow,
And hiding from today...

But if you strip away my armor,
If you strip away my pain,
If you strip away all that I've lost,
And leave me all I've gained,
I am all that remains

I am all that remains...

I've taken all I could,
Even when I knew it would,
Only hurt you and me...
All the love that I've felt,
Had been so disguised,
I felt forced to deny...
And it seems...
That I was always denying...

Denying the world,
Denying my shame,
Denying tomorrow,
And denying today...

(And life...can't be lived this way...)

If you strip away my armor,
If you strip away my pain,
If you strip away all that I've lost,
And leave me all I've gained,
I am all that remains

I am all that remains...

All that remains is me!
(Is me!)
And everything that I see...!
It's all, so much more clear!
(It's clear...!)
All that remains is me!
(Is me...!)
And that's really all...
I've ever wanted to be...

(All I ever wanted to be...)

Is me!

So if you strip away my armor,
If you strip away my pain!
And strip away,
All that I've lost!
And leave me all I've gained!
I am...!
I am all that remains!

All that remains...

I am all that remains

An intensely honest piece, a reflection of a period in my life.

I chose right, to be myself.

It is the right choice for anyone, after all, we can only be who we are. :heart:
