It was over
Before it could even start,
And I was safe again
Before I could lose my heart
Don’t say a word,
I know exactly how you feel.
I’ll make it easy for you –
I’ll paste the final seal.
I won’t cry
(At least you won’t see the tears)
And I’ll be very strong
No one will see my fears.
Inside my heart
The truth is locked away forever;
No one will ever know
The feelings I had to sever.
Is it goodbye?
I guess it must be so,
But will it make me sad?
No one will ever know.
I loved a man and then I lost;
And now I have to pay the cost
Of life alone in Solitude;
A constant dark’ning of the mood.
It’s not the loss that I can’t face
But haunting mem’ries of loving days;
So filled with lies and subterfuge;
T’would make another want to lose.
Perhaps I trusted much in haste.
Now I stand amidst the waste,
Trying to face reality
And slay the dragons to set me free.
But still I’m bound with all my chains,
While I’m learning to cope with all the pain
And this agony I feel inside;
But there is no haven – I cannot hide.

There is a defining moment in everyone’s
When we see things as they really are.
When the veil of confusion and darkness
And Truth stands before you.
It will not be ignored nor pushed aside
It cannot be denied.
Eyes now open, they cannot close.
Truth may blind you, it hurts you so
But there’s nowhere you can go.
