sorry you don't see why I won't go back

sorry I can't make you understand

I wish you could just hold my hand

because my world is turning black.

sorry I can't tell you why

sorry you think I failed

it seems my life I have derailed

and now all I want to do is cry.

sorry for your dissapointment

sorry for the pain I cause

I know I put my life on pause

but I promise only for a moment.

sorry for the numerous lies

sorry I have to hide the truth

you think I'm wasting away my youth

because all you hear are my cries.

sorry for the shame I've dealt

sorry for the loss of trust

I know my life needs an adjust

that's why I'm getting help.

sorry I can't tell you why

sorry I'm not ready

I wish my life were a bit more steady

so the truth I wouldn't have to hide.

sorry it seems I've not been strong

sorry to tell you like this

but the truth of the matter is

I was raped all along.
