Shouldn't he be a friend, not someone like this I can't tell my story without shedding tears
Don't want to remember; want to block it all out
But I can't anymore; can't keep the secret
I trust my friends and they help me along
What happens when they've finally had enough They leave, but there are some who're there
They let me cry, let me talk, 'till I'm better again
But I don't want to remember what the did
I feel so betrayed; so violated; to hated
If I want wanted to tell, I can't remember it all. Don't want to; but I have to; just can't anymore
Can't talk, can't remember, can't face him today...
If I tell, will he hate me then? Don't want that
Don't want more tears, don't want more abuse Either way I chose I'll cry; I'm protecting him
Shouldn't protect him anymore; why do I?
Don't want the tears to come anymore at night
Don't want to be weak; I keep shattering
Why now? Why ever? Why'd it happen at all?
Being forced to see him this summer; hurts so much
They don't know what he did to me
They're blind; do I really hide this well?
Sometimes I feel so alone, and then I see the
Caring faces of my friends around me
Even without words, I know it'll all be all right
Don't want no more tears; don't want it
Don't want more abuse; can't take it anymore
Either way I choose, I'll cry; I'm still protecting him
