    Please excuse me me for a second
    I've got to take my mask off for a moment
    I've got to let me hair down for a minute
    I've got to take a breather just for today

    I know you are use to a phenomonal woman
    But today I've just got to be me for a sec
    I can't hold the world on my shoulder right now
    But I promise to pick it back up in due time

    My first aid kit is running a little low on supplies
    So I must be selfish and take time to heal myself first
    I can no longer cover my wound and tend to others
    When I am whole again I'll be a better physician

    I know if you look at me you think I have it all toghether
    That's only because my mask hides my tears and fears
    I've been programmed really well to let no man see me cry
    For in the past, others took my weakness and expolited it for there good

    So now I wear my mask and build walls so noone can see me
    But sometimes I must break out of this self guarded fortress
    But don't worry I'm not asking you to understand or rescue me
    I just needed a moment, tommorrow I'll be invincible again, you'll see

    sista i feel you sometime the pain and things done apply a mask
    to hide the real self from more hurt and tears even fears that aloof
    feeling you deeply take that time to heal.
