You've Changed

People are taken aback by me
They’re complaining
That I’ve changed
Since I met the girl
I’m another person, they say
Ever since I started seeing her

But it’s not that she changed me
She brought out who I always was
She loved me for myself
That latent soul
That hibernating bear deep down in the cave
And taught me
That the self I’ve been hiding from everyone
Is good
And it’s OK to be that

So here I am
Finally myself
And you think I changed for the worse
But maybe you never really liked me
Maybe you liked the front
And the garbage bin of personality 
That remained
When I held most of my self back

So I didn’t change
I just became me
And if you don’t like it
You don’t like me
So fuck off
And I mean that
In the nicest way
