Secrets that Didn’t want to Keep themselves

So many things new
I can not tell you
because they’ve so hurt me

I want you to know
I can’t seem to let go
of these things inside me

These secrets I don’t want to keep
Into you’re thoughts they creep
driving you away from me

Try to understand
these things against my command
are staying within me

Oh, please don’t go
I want you to know
but how do you tell
that you’ve just been through hell
To someone who can’t help you now?

I know that you love me
You said that you love me
Do you still love me
even though I can’t tell you why or how?

It angers you that you can’t help
Oh, I want you to help
but I can’t just let go
I can’t let you know
Why or How
it hurts
