All my life I’ve kept these words
And promised myself that it wasn’t to be spoken
Things have changed now that you know
This promise has now been broken.

Opening up to you took a lot from me
I tore my heart open just to tell you
I spilled my whole past out in tears
These things you never knew I went through

I’m not going to tell you every detail
So please don’t try and make me
Some things have to be kept unsaid
Never to be touched and invisible to see.

I don’t expect you to understand
I only need you to care,
Help me replace the love that I’ve lost
And please always be there.

I don’t want you to run from me
Or scare you far away
This is my cry out for help
Be here. Please. every step of the way.
