Their secrets

the little girl down the corridor
the soft spoken boy in the locker
the twins who are best friends
the sweetest couple behind the door
they all have a secret
which they can't tell

someday they may tell each other
what really happened
and who it was
what they felt and what they thought

the little girl down the corridor
she told me her secret
it was about her daddy
he ran away with her
because his friends didn't like him
he needed her as a musician needs his guitar

the soft-spoken boy in the locker
he told me his secret too
he's not what his mother wants him to be
so he doesn't speak
and when he does it's always the wrong thing to say
at least that's how he feels

the twins who are best friends
yeh i heard each of their secrets
they're tired of having a twin
always having to pretend
that they're really twins
one is a clone of the other
who might die sometime soon
but they still love each other

the sweetest couple behind the door
they're not who you think they are
they love each other more than you will ever know and will ever feel
that's why tomorrow they won't be here
because they ran away
to be
together

forever

the old man stuck in a chair
did i forget to tell you about him?
he's in it
because he tried saved his wife who tried to stop him from saving her
and ended up paralyzed
but he's happy because the confusing part of his life is over

and that girl with the green headphones and green converse
yeh that's me
her secret is she's in love with a boy she thinks she knows she can't ever have
because he won't love her the same
he won't talk to her
and tell her what he really thinks of her
she loves him more each day that passes even though she likes other boys
she'll always love him
because
she

can't


let






go.

This is really great. I can totally relate. The spacing out of the words at the end added a great emphasis to it. Keep it up! ^^
