My mouth spoke no untruths
I've told you no lies
Should omission be as bad?
Deception should come as no surprise
I've hid my tears from you
Shielding you from my pain
Watching you wistfully waiting
To see my smile again.
Something's wrong and we both know
And yet I pretend to be fine
But still that itching fear you have asks
Could the fault be mine?
I hate to darken your rising sun
Or awaken your night alarms
And so I shake silently in sorrow
As I'm lying in the dark…in the dark…in your arms.
Inside you try and trace the path.
Wondering how it began
Frustration and insecurity causes doubt
You ask, is it another man?
Would that you knew the truth
It's not another…just you
Just you whose happy heart would break
If you knew what it would take?
To see my soul again awake.
"What?" you ask
"Freedom!" I say.
If Freedom you'll give.
Then Freedom I'll take.
