Kim and Friends' Songs

Oil on Water

People have different masks that they wear for friends, for parents, for co-workers. It might be intentional, or it might be a function of reacting to the other person's personality. This song is about the more sinister side of wearing masks. As the lyric says, "you see what I let you see."

Lyrics for Oil on Water 

You tell me that you know me.
You say you understand.
My heart is like a window,
You see so clear.
You're wrong, my dear.
So very many people
All live inside my head.
You're never gonna meet them
They all hide
Way down inside.

Like oil upon the water when the sun shines
My colours changing every time you look.
You say you know the person that I am when I'm with you,
But you see what I let you see.

You'll never really know me.
You'll never know the truth.
Kaleidoscopic people
With many names.
We're all the same.
I'm different with my Mother.
I change when you are near.
I love you when you're with me
But otherwise
A new disguise.

Like oil upon the water when the sun shines
My colours changing every time you look.
You say you know the person that I am when I'm with you
But you see what I let you see.

I won't say that I know you.
I hardly scratch the skin.
A million thoughts, a million dreams?
I only know
The things you show.
So tell me that you love me
But don't you be so proud
To think you understand me
And all the people that I sometimes choose to be
to make myself complete.

Like oil upon the water when the sun shines
My colours changing every time you look.
You say you love the person that I am when I'm with you
But you see what I let you see.
Only what I let you see.
Only what I let you see.
