I keep my paint brush with me wherever I may go In case I need to cover up so the real me doesn't show I'm so afraid to show you me Afraid of what you'll do that you might laugh or say mean things I'm afraid I might lose you.
I'd like to remove all my paint coats to show you the real, true me, But I want you to try and understand, I need you to accept what you see. So if you'll be patient and close you eyes I'll strip off all my coats real slow Please understand how much it hurts so let the real me show
Now my coats are all stripped off I feel naked, bare and cold, and if you still love me with alll the you see
You are my friend, pure as gold I need to save my paint brush, though and hold it in my hand I want to keep it handy
In case somebody doesnt understnad So please protect me, my dear friend and thanks for loving me true
But please let me keep my paint brush with me
Until I love me too.
