when life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then step back and let the world wonder how you did it
when life gives you lemon, throw them back at life

You never really know what I'm feeling
Because you can't read my poker face
You never know what I'm thinking
Because that I'll never say
I hide it all from you
You'll never be able to get close
You'll never get to hurt what I value most
This blank face
It's more than a disguise
it's how I live
The real me is for no one's eyes

"The real me is for no one's eyes" Kind of reminds me of myself in a way. I like it(:

I do this... I hide how I'm feeling and stuff from others, very nice job! I think the capitalization of MY HEART was a bit weird, but that's just me... And is it bad if the Lady Gaga song started playing through my head? hahaha, well very nice job!
