"Disguise" as written by and Lene Marlin(marlin Pedersen....
Have you ever felt some kind of emptiness inside
You will never measure up, to those people you
Must be strong, can't show them that you're weak
Have you ever told someone something
That's far from the truth
Let them know that you're okay
Just to make them stop
All the wondering, and questions they may have

I'm okay, I really am now
Just needed some time, to figure things out
Not telling lies, I'll be honest with you
Still we don't know what's yet to come

Have you ever seen your face,
In a mirror there's a smile
But inside you're just a mess,
You feel far from good
Need to hide, 'cause they'd never understand
Have you ever had this wish, of being
Somewhere else
To let go of your disguise, all your worries too
And from that moment, then you see things clear

I'm okay, I really am now
Just needed some time, to figure things out
Not telling lies, I'll be honest with you
Still we don't know what's yet to come

Are you waiting for the day
When your pain will disappear
When you know that it's not true
What they say about you
You could not care less about the things
Surrounding you
Ignoring all the voices from now on

    General CommentI love this song, mainly because the idea behind of being "in disguise" is a constant in my own life. Wanting to desperately get rid of the facade you're hiding behind, but not having the courage to do so.

    "I'm okay, I really am now... Not telling lies, I'll be honest with you" is her way of telling the person confronting her that she's okay. Desperately trying to convince them. And, perhaps herself too.

    General CommentJust now, this moment, I think I finally realise what the song is about. It was like something just came to me. To me; The song can be about the disguise we all fall in sometimes, hiding from the truth to help others, forget our own feelings and be more aware of helping friends. It's also a kind of biography in it. I think Lene tries to tell us she's okay and won't be thinking about rumors and stuff anymore. And tries to tell us she's okay after those three years with silence. "I'm okay, I really am now, just needed some time to figure things out". It's just like she tells us.

    I really love this song.

    General CommentI think this song is about the difficult times she went through after her first album Playing My Game did so well. She was working too much, her album did much better than she ever hoped for and she experienced the downsides to being so popular: everybody wanting a piece of her, and her private life, taking pictures and all the utrue things written about her.
    So she's was wearing a disguise, so to say, pretending to be ok, wanting to be ok because of all the good things that had happened in her life, but inside she wasn't coping with it.

    That's an interesting thought and I'd never thought about it from that perspective.

    For me, I feel like the song really is what the politicalscratch and mealroint said. It seems about the constant disguise which everyone is in. Everyone has to "measure up" and conform with society so as not to be viewed as an outcast. We're always adapting and changing who we truly are for other people just to get by in life.
