Secrets

Please don’t tell me I’m strong
Cuz my heart is breaking
And don’t tell me I’m wrong
Cuz my soul keeps escaping (me)
You don’t know how much I hide behind these eyes
They’ll never know how hard I’ve had to fight to keep the light

Couldn’t scratch and claw
Slid my back up, up the wall
And I climbed the stairs
To find heaven waiting there
Or was it hell
I couldn’t tell

Use my wit to cover the wounds
Which have yet to heal
Use my humor as concealer
Make scars disappear
You see me shrug it off
So you assume that I’m fine
They’ll never understand
The depths of my cries

Couldn’t scratch and claw
Slid my back up, up the wall
And I climbed the stairs
To find heaven waiting there
Or was it hell
I shouldn’t tell

I lay on the floor
Waiting for sleep to come
Couldn’t remember more
Of what I’d done
Took the pill that they gave
Sedate my dreams
Tired of trying to make sense of what it all means

Couldn’t scratch and claw
Slid my back up, up the wall
And I climbed the stairs
To find heaven waiting there
Or was it hell
I’ll never tell
