I Lied

By , meadow grove, NE
I see the scars
And know
How weak I once was
And how weak I still am
I lied
I drop the blade
And swear to be strong
But I lied
I leave it lay
As I walk away
But I lied
I look at you and promise,
"I won't cut again."
But I lied
If you look
Into my eyes
You'll know
How I've lied
You stop me on the street
And ask
"Did you cut again?"
I'll lie
I look at you
And swear
"I didn't cut again."
But I lied
When you look into my eyes
You'll know
How I've lied`
