i asked a friend to draw me, and
im' scared of what i'll see.
and not for her talent, she captures bodies well.
the problem is, she draws souls as well.

i've never seen her misread,
      she translates
      soulspeak perfectly.
      which frightens me.

i'm afraid she'll draw the dark
      the twisted parts.
      the ones i try to fight... and lose.
      the ones i try to hide for they are foul.

i am afraid she'll draw the hurt
      the broken parts.
      the ones i try to heal... and lose
      the ones i try to hide--for them i fear.

i'm afraid she'll draw the right
      the true parts.
      the ones i try deny... and lose
      the ones i try to hide--i think them lies.

i asked a friend to draw me and
i'm afraid of what i'll see.

      i'm afraid
           she won't let me
           hate myself
           the way i want to
           for she translates
           soulspeak perfectly

i'm afraid to let her draw me--
i'm afraid of what *she'll* see.
i'm afraid she'll be right.

      i'm not sure
           i want her
                to draw me
                     after all.
