I Can’t Tell You

I can’t tell you what you did to me
It would cause you too much pain
You didn’t do it willingly
And I can’t stand to see your shame
Just what good would it possibly do
To dwell on those mistakes?
I’d rather hide the truth from you
It’s better for both of our sakes
I’ve lied, and I’ve cried
Then avoided and denied
Because even with how hard you tried
My heart’s been broken a thousand times
