    Baby come as you are
    Please don’t hide behind the mask
    Don’t put on a show
    Don’t smile when you’re really sad
    Cry if the tears want to fall
    Be yourself
    Show me your scars
    Show me your wounds
    I’ll show you mine

    Let me see
    That side of you that nobody knows
    Tell me your secrets
    I would never tell another soul
    I’ll take them to my grave
    Before I utter a single word
    Let me hear your questions
    I’ll tell you whatever you need to know
    Which chapter do you want to start with?
    I have nothing to hide

    No matter what
    I’m still going to stay afloat
    In the deep waters of your life
    Who am I to judge you?
    When my life hasn’t been perfect
    I want to get to know you
    I’m here for you now

    Come as you really are
    Not that image that you put on for others
    Hold my hand
    Let’s take a walk
    Where do you want to begin?
