I said, "Hey, you, this is me
The idealist inside that holds your love
On a string
Wound and tied like kites
To all your hopes and dreams
What a tangled mess
That they've turned out to be
Take a breath
And ask yourself what matters."

Days like masquerades
Silent, hiding in the shadows
Oh, stripped of their disguise
Leaves you haunted as you scatter
But you're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

When you feel lost out at sea
Surrounded by unequal sides
The same routine
Becoming what you swore you'd never be
Don't distress
There's a big bright place
If you stay close to me
Take a breath
And I'll show you what matters

Days like masquerades
Silent, hiding in the shadows
Oh, stripped of their disguise
Leaves you haunted as you scatter
But you're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

Days like masquerades
Take a breath and feel what matters
Days like masquerades
Take a breath and feel what matters
Days like masquerades
Take a breath and feel what matters
Days like masquerades
Take a breath and feel
A breath and feel

    General CommentGreat song - great EP!!!

    The guy wants the girl to keep her personality or had hoped she was different something like that
    "idealist" he wanted their relationship to grow

    Masquerades can mean a false outward show and thats probably what they're referring to
    Too scared to show real self and despite this false pretense he can't help thinking about her and he likes her for her true self. He's trying to get her to be herself and be with him - show her what matters

    That's the best i could come up with ;)
