Take me for who I am
Or you'll never know
Things you want to understand
Like a picture donning parts
Some things take time to see
A similarity then differences unraveling

Show me who you are
And I'll let you in
And if you should see some scars
Remember that each of us have something like

I'm not that shy
I'm not too scared
I'm a little afraid
But isn't everybody
And I'm not there yet
I'm unprepared
I'm an unexpected hero
If you're giving this
And if I'm dying
And I want to hide
Sometimes I close my eyes
And pretend to fly
And it works for me
And it wakes me, wakes me everytime
And it wakes me, wakes me everytime

Don't judge me for who I'm not
And we'll get along
Give me all that you got
And somehow we'll belong
I could sleep at night
If I knew that you were
Always staying 'round

I'm not that shy
I'm not too scared
I'm a little afraid
But isn't everybody
And I'm not there yet
I'm unprepared
I'm an unexpected hero
If you're giving this
And if I'm dying
And I want to hide
Sometimes I close my eyes
And pretend to fly
'Cause it works for me
And it wakes me, wakes me everytime
And it wakes me, wakes me everytime

If I have my heart out on the line
Don't leave it there for the wind to dry

Take me for who I am
And in a little while
I'll be right around your fingers

I'm not that shy
I'm not too scared
I'm a little afraid
But isn't everybody
And I'm not there yet
I'm unprepared
I'm an unexpected hero
If you're giving this
And you and I
Will we want to hide?
Sometimes we close our eyes
And begin to fly

And you wake me,
Wake me every time.
