Not a story, not a secret

A bittersweet memory

Tainted with tears

This is a confession

Not a story, not a secret

A bittersweet memory

Tainted with tears

A memory of a day

When the world collapsed

And the flames of my heart

Were put out

Eternity is nothing

Forever is done for

Even promises

Cannot hold their ground

Innocence in youth

Is an illusion

From the moment we are born

We are exposed

You will never understand

My pain and my sadness

Because this confession

Is to prevent you from understanding

Lock your heart away

Or else someone will scar it

Freeze it in ice

Don't ever melt it

Pretend to not care

Or else you will care too much

Your mouth is sealed

Your soul empty

And when someone comes along

And fills it

They will take it away

Sooner or later

For me it's too late

I am scarred; I am broken

Because of that bittersweet memory

Tainted with tears
