I told another lie today
I pretended I was well
Covered the bruises, hoped they'd fade
Because you told me not to tell.
Though I whispered, "please stay"
I want it to be over,
And I wish you'd go away.
I'm going to blow your cover.
I don't fear life without you
It's really what I need.
I need to be rescued
Because all is not as it seems.
I want to tell the truth,
Done with "what will he do to me?"
I'm done fearing change, and you,
What I fear more, you see,
Is hiding your wicked deeds.
