Not meant to be known
Not meant to be seen

False statements

Secrets are secrets
Not meant to be shared
Is there a keeper for the secrets I share
Or does that make me a bad keeper
For the ones who’ve shared theirs

I told you that secret
You promised you’d keep it
You lied
You said you’d tell no one
You lied

You were angry with me
You tried to hurt me
Tried to make me cry
So you lied

Lesson learned
Never tell a secret
Never tell a lie

Not to you
Not to him
Not to her

Secrets are secrets
Not meant to be share
There is no keeper for the secrets I shared

The things I told you got passed along
Words were changed and now it’s all wrong

You succeeded in hurting me
But I did not cry
Because of your lies
I waited
Then we moved on with our lives

Yes you did change me
Not sure for better or worse
Just know that I no longer trust you
And that may be what you deserve
