Maria Mena - Takes One To Know One

You’ve lived a haunted life

I’ve tried to imagine how I’d feel

If I was thrown into the public eye

Before my wounds had healed

The way you flashed us with your

Scars and told us about your rules

Like we were students

in your “how-to-be-dramatic” little school

Now I can understand how

After all that you’ve been through

You’d lock yourself inside

Waiting for us to come and rescue you

But what I can’t fathom is

While imprisoned in yourself

You wouldn’t ever take a look around

Just blame everyone else

Pulling the “look-at-me-I’m-hurt” card

Got you friends that wouldn’t dare

Question any little tantrum

No, halfway – they would meet you there

Your lover fears your reactions

He’s like a puppy on a leash

He doesn’t tread outside your boundaries

Without saying “please”

Now I can understand how

You’d be scared to trust again

Seeing on fame would be a magnet

For the tensions he confronts.

But what I can’t fathom is

If your friends lie to keep you calm

You wouldn’t ever ask yourself

Who they got that idea from

I could be scared of you

I would cater to your needs

Your dominating ways,

my overwhelming fear of conflict feeds

But I’ve learned not to get involved

By admitting more about myself

Takes one to know one honey,

trust me take a look inside yourself
