I have a secret
That I don’t want you to know
I feel so fragile
In my body
Waiting until the moment I break

Pieces of my glass flying
Leaving me unshielded
I’m going to cry
Just say goodbye
As my feelings want to take over

I have a secret
About just the two of us
I’m keeping it in
For the time being
Because I don’t want to be hurt again

I’m trying to keep my eyes from flooding
The hole in my middle trembles
Growing larger
And much darker
The hole engulfs my spirits

I have a secret
I can’t take you not knowing
But to tell, I can’t
Not yet, I mustn’t
I need to hide it for a little longer

My shell protects me well
From the downpour of the rain
I wish to dance
Splashing through the puddles
But inside I must wait

I have a secret
It’s just not quite time yet
I’ll keep it
Just to myself
And one day I’ll be able to tell you
