You’ve been keeping secrets

there’s something you’re not saying,

But every time I bring it up

the subject always changes,

 

 

 

 

 

I lie awake and wonder

what it could possibly be,

I sometimes start to question

your feelings for me,

 

 

 

 

 

We’re supposed to be honest

in everything we do,

But I guess I should confess

that I’ve been keeping secrets too,

 

 

 

 

 

I told you that I loved you

and I meant every word,

But now that I look back

it all just seems so absurd,

 

 

 

 

 

I’m starting to get tired

of hearing you say,

“I love you and I need you”

when I know that it is fake,

 

 

 

 

 

I wish you’d be more open

and tell me how you really feel,

Instead of keeping all these secrets

and making our love seem so unreal,

 

 

 

 

 

So I’ll tell my little secret

I think something’s got to change,

I don’t know what happened

but our love will never be the same,

 

 

 

 

 

I think it’s time we moved on

and I’ll act like I’m just fine,

But the truth is that deep down inside

a little piece of me is dying,




 

 

It seems like you’ve moved on

and I wish I could say the same,

But I think about you every night

and I know that sounds a bit cliche,

 

 

 

 

I wish I could tell you

how I really feel,

But you’ve closed all your doors

so I guess my feelings aren’t that big of a deal,

 

 

 

 

I don’t think we were meant to be

but just know that I’ll never leave,

I think we should never speak again

but at the same time I still want to be friends,

 

 

 

 

 

I have such mixed feelings

I wish I could sort them out,

But I hope you understand that I will always love you

without a doubt,

 

 

 

 

 

So I guess this is goodbye

I’ll think about you every day and night,

There’ll be days where I’ll hate you

But for now I want to thank you,

The time we spent together

I will cherish and forever remember.
