about

Internalised is a song about overcoming internalised queerphobia.

lyrics

Not sure who I am
Know who I’m meant to be
Which story today
It’s getting harder to breathe
Long hair, flowing dress
Am I the woman society wants me to be?

Is the threat real
Or is it in my head?
I wish I could read their minds
Come clean
I’ll set me free
Is it all internalised?

Girlfriend
A word I can’t get off my tongue
Can I call you my friend
What does it matter anyway?
Drop your hand
Look the other way
Too many years of hiding in the shade
Wrapped in shame

Is the threat real
Or is it in my head?
I wish I could read their minds
Come clean
I’ll set me free
Is it all internalised?

I want to leave my head
Tear down the walls
Hold your hand in mine
Out in the light

And for the first time in my life
I’m proud to call you mine
For the first time in my life
I’m proud to call you mine
To call you, to call you mine
To call you, to call you mine
(I feel the shame melt away
I feel the shame melt away)
To call you, to call you mine
To call you, to call you mine
(I feel the shame melt away
I feel the shame melt away)

I feel the shame melt away
(Hold me close)
I feel the shame melt away
