Creative Brief

This is a song that requires a female lead vocal. The idea is that you've got a woman who is having a conversation with a guy that she's been friends with since childhood. In those childhood days, they used to run around playing cops and robbers games with the other neighbourhood kids. In those days, she always was on the side of the good guys (the cops) and he was on the side of the bad guys (the robbers). Now, in their grown up present, she wants him to confirm that he's actually one of life's good guys because she wants them to be more than just friends.

 

The Man Behind Your Mask


(Verse 1)

When I was young I played cops and robbers

With the boys in my neighbourhood

There were conventions that we followed

And some were well understood

 

(Pre chorus)

The bad guys get to wear masks

The good guys get to wear a badge

Both had guns made of sticks

The bad guys get the loot but then meet their match


(Chorus)

But I want to see the man behind your mask

Do you want to see the girl behind my badge?


(Verse 2)

When I wake up I go through the motions

With the bozos in my place of work

But I remember those old conventions

Yeah, they were well understood


(Pre chorus)

The bad guys get to wear masks

The good guys get to wear a badge

Both had guns made of sticks

The bad guys get the loot but then meet their match


(Chorus)

But I want to see the man behind your mask

Do you want to see the girl behind my badge?

 

(Bridge)

These days you wear your mask high up on your face

So that all I can see are your blue eyes. (Your blues eyes, your blue eyes)

I think they hint that you should wear a badge

It's not too late for you to switch sides

 

(Verse 3)

It's so long since we played cops and robbers

You've had time now to figure it out

I've got my badge pinned faithfully to my heart

And my gun's laid on the ground

 

(Chorus)
I want to see the man behind your mask

Yeah, I want to see the man behind the mask

And if you’re brave and show me behind your mask

Maybe you'll get to see behind my badge
