You tell me now that you love me
but I know that can't be true;
for there is a side about me
that no one ever knew.

I've kept inside myself
to keep from falling down;
they can not sink me lower
I'm already on the ground.

You ask me if I love you
but I do not like to lie;
so every time you look at me
I turn away and stay silent.

There’s so much I should tell
but fear shall hold me back;
forever I'll be bitter
as my heart is turning black.

The time is coming fast
and I've decided to let you know;
that I do so love you
which is why I'm letting go.
