I stand

By Gabriel Ricard

Lips are sealed

This time I promise

I can keep a secret

And know better not to tell

I've tried to explain before

Doing it for you

Hoping an obscure doctor

With a daughter

Who had been there before

Could help you with a story

Never the less, I knew it was so unlikely

So I wrote it out anyway

Knowing the world would find it

And of course I claimed ignorance

Then muttering I had meant for the best

You didn't believe me

I have the anger shaped scars to prove it

But now I've learned far better

I have to admit I'm addicted to your embrace

So I hope you trust me
