Safe and Sound.
By Matty.

So much pain,
All because of one lie.

So many tears,
All because of what you said.

So many lies,
All to shield me from the truth…

“I care about you…”
Bullshit.

“I won’t ever hurt you…”
Why did you lie to me?

“She’s going to hurt you!”
Why were they right?

I wasn’t ever going to hurt you…
So why did you hurt me?

I thought I had found you…
I thought you would keep me safe…

I thought your voice,
Would be the one sound I ever heard…

I kept you safe…
Why didn’t you keep me sound?
