Skirmish: mask

Lyrics: 

I know nothing about you
So let us get more close
Explore starting something new
Where it goes nobody knows

First let's delve a lot more deep
Get past this screen between us
You hide parts I've not seen
This time it isn't enough

Come out from your mask
Show me the true you
Shouldn't have to ask
I'll share myself too

There's no promise that we'll gel
Love says give this a fair go
Covering flaws won't work out well
Soon enough someone will know

Come out from your mask
Show me the true you
Shouldn't have to ask
I'll share myself too

You're hiding a truth
From those trying to love you
You're lying is cruel
To those fighting to come true

Come out from your mask
Show me the true you
Shouldn't have to ask
I'll share myself too

Let's drop all the pretending
Else this just won't go forward
We want a happy ending
Not a romance that's awkward

Come out from your mask
Show me the true you
Shouldn't have to ask
I'll share myself too

I like the earnest appeal and the sense of vulnerability in the narrators perspective. I think it gives the lyric a sense of authenticity that I like a lot.

Really nice job with this.The chorus has a great hook that encapsulates the verses.

I like the spokesmanship for being authentic, and the emphasis on the inevitability of suffering when resting on falseness. It's very straight talk, very fair and very direct.
