The song is between Egyptian Princess Amneris and Nubian Princess Aida as Amneris shares the reason for her constant smiling and shallow behavior being a mask hiding her insecurities, and her fears due to her father's failing health. Aida gives her a much needed morale boost, sharing her own struggles being the princess of Nubia, and the two form a genuine bond as friends.
Amneris: I may leave a great impression
As I race through a succession
Of the latest crazes, chase the newest fad
I feel better when beguiling
Find that fashion keeps me smiling
But in my heart, I know it's rather sad
Aida: That a life of great potential
Is dismissed, inconsequential
Amneris: And only ever seen as being...cute
So I'll flutter to deceive.
Aida: Oh no
No, you must believe
That one day you're bound to find
Amneris & Aida: A stronger suit
