"The Real Me" as written by and Natalie Grant....
Foolish heart looks like we're here again
Same old game of plastic smile
Don't let anybody in
Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
How much will they take before I'm empty
Do I let it show, does anybody know?

But You see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
'Cause You see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask
Self-inflicted circus clown
I'm tired of the song and dance
Living a charade, always on parade
What a mess I've made of my existence
But You love me even now
And still I see somehow

But You see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
'Cause You see the real me

Wonderful, beautiful is what You see
When You look at me
You're turning the tattered fabric of my life into
A perfect tapestry
I just wanna be me

But You see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
'Cause You see the real me

And You love me just as I am

Wonderful, beautiful is what You see
When You look at me

    General Commentanyway i think this song is talking about a girl and it's really hard for her she's going through a really hard time and is forced to fake it so no one can see her pain and god is the only one really that sees her for what she is and knows her pain

    General Commentself inflicted circus clown means she's putting on a mask, you know how circus clowns have that smile plastered on their face as part of their costume? it's like that, she's putting on a fake smile for the rest of the world but inside she's hurting...

    love the song.
    it's amazing
