lyrics

SECRETS
Kathi Long / Darrell Scott

You can't see me, but I'm right here
You can talk talk talk talk about me, but I can hear what you say
I'm not invisible but you think I am
I could scream my pain at you but you will never understand
The secrets that I hold
Secrets can't be told

You have your hopes and dreams that fly far away
Me I'm behind my prison bars praying lord help me thru another day
These secrets can't be told
Secrets that I hold

I am burdened with the shame and your conscience is free
I'm shackled to your past and you'll never know just what you've done to me
With these secrets

No one can touch me I think I'd break
This souvenir you've left me gave me more than this one soul can take
I'm in slow motion I can't be alone
My thoughts are my enemy, my enemy is everywhere I go
I got secrets that I hold
Secrets can't be told

I'm falling in the dark you're rising in the sun
My scars keep getting deeper you'll never see the damage you have done
Hey, whose secrets do I hold
Whose secrets can't be told
I know your secret
