Don't Speak

I know you will guess all I leave unsaid.
~Comte de Mirabeau

The first time I didn't say
What exactly was on my mind
It came with consequences
My friend lost their life

And now I'm faced once again
With the same situation
How did I get back here
With the same complication

Don't speak
I might change my mind
Don't speak
I need to walk away this time
Don't speak
I can't let this go too far
Don't speak
I have to leave before I lose my heart

You have an iron grip
Around my wrist
I can't get away
But I can't give up yet

You demand an answer
A truthful explanation
For all of my sudden fear
And hesitation

Don't speak
I might change my mind
Don't speak
I need to walk away this time
Don't speak
I can't let this go too far
Don't speak
I have to leave before I lose my heart

Time can heal most anything
At least that's what they tell me
Memories will fade away
But in the past my mind seems to stay

Keep silent
Keep it down
Disappear
Into the crowd
My heart is breaking
My fears awakening
My tears are falling
I keep on running

Don't speak
I might change my mind
Don't speak
I have to safe your life
If you lose yours
I won't make it through this time

Don't speak
I might change my mind
Don't speak
I need to walk away this time
Don't speak
I can't let this go too far
Don't speak
I have to leave before I lose my heart... again

My inspiration for this piece was the loss of a friend a few years ago due to a car accident. I remember almost asking if he wanted a ride home that day, but I just told myself I'd see him tomorrow.
