about

I sometimes end up changing song titles even though the lyrics stay the same. This song was originally called Misconceptions. I think this song has an important meaning for Saara, the lyricist. We all put these different roles on according to who we are with. Where is the real self after all?

lyrics

It's like being someone else,
living as another
we all do it daily and
we accuse each other
for pretending
and for sending
misconceptions

We grow so attached to these
roles that we have taken
Yet if we should see our masks
it would leave us shaken
In our make-up
we can't shake up
misconceptions

With our well picked garderobe,
costumes we call fashion,
we can judge each other's shows
but we can not ration
our conceptions,
preconceptions,
misconceptions


Would you play pretend with me?
Would you play make believe?
Don't say these are children's games
we all play them anyway
