"In My Own Eyes" as written by and Brandi M. Carlile....
Hold me down, lift me up,
There's someone on the bedside waiting there for me.
I hear my name, I turn around,
There's gotta be a downside, something I don't see
Around me.

Hide me.
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side, please.
I don't really want to be seen in my own eyes

Something's wrong, awake all night.
'cause I can feelthe dark side closing in on me.
Do you see me as I see myself?
I promise there's a downside, something you can't see
About me.

Hide me.
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side, please.
I don't really want to be seen in my own eyes.

Lost in translation, free to fall,
One situation, and lose it all.

Hide me.
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side, please.
I don't really want to be seen in my own eyes.

    General CommentI see this as a song about not wanting to be able to see who you really are and not wanting anyone else to.
    It's a song about covering yourself in a mask of other people so no-one can see you.
