lyrics

NOBODY KNOWS
Bill Auger / Darden Smith

I came from home from war and people think I’m messed up in my head
Cause I saw too much combat, but the truth instead
Is that the trouble started a long time ago
I got these secrets that nobody knows

As child I learned to be afraid to be left alone
I joined the Marines thinking I’d find the strength to stand on my own
I ran to the fight but the fight just followed me home
I got these secrets that nobody knows

Nobody knows the pain I’ve seen
Nobody knows the trouble I dream
I don’t show, I don’t tell
I’m walking tall but I’m just a shell
And nobody knows, nobody knows but me

It’s easier to deal with the devil you know than the devil outside your door
I’ve been carrying this burden for a long, long time, I can’t carry the weight much more
If I told you the truth, would you promise you won’t go?
I’ve got these secrets nobody knows

Nobody knows the pain I’ve seen
Nobody knows the trouble I dream
I don’t show, I don’t tell
I’m walking tall but I’m just a shell
And nobody knows, nobody knows but me

Heaven sent me an angel, not a minute too soon
She’s my reason for healing these wounds
She’s my reason to start facing the truth

Nobody knows the pain I’ve seen
Nobody knows the trouble I dream
I don’t show, I don’t tell
I’m walking tall but I’m just a shell
And nobody knows, nobody knows but me
