Don't Give Me Faces

from by Osprey Flies The Nest



Don’t give me faces
Don’t show me a mask you think I want to see
Don’t give me faces
Don’t show me the person you’re pretending to be
I won’t give you faces
Won’t show you a mask I think you want to see
I won’t give you faces
Won’t show you the person I’m pretending to be

Now I know you’re blue
I’ve been feelin’ it too
It’s the kind that touches everything
But this is your music, feel the beat
Let’s go dance in the street
C’mon play that guitar, and sing

Pain ain’t the same thing as suffering
*My body is not an apology but a blessing
My disability’s not my identity
I’m the real deal
I show how I feel
I’ll tell you what’s real
Come on show how you feel
Tell me what’s real
Let’s see what the truth reveals

*This line was inspired by the poem “The Body Is Not An Apology” by Sonya Renee Taylor, and the movement that grew out of it.
