The secret I keep is as big as the sea.
I know I am hurting more than just me.
If I share it, I wonder if
it will do more harm than good.
The secret I keep, has me losing much sleep.
I lay here staring at the ceiling,
wondering why I let this happen.
I could make excuses, I could lie to myself
but the truth is, I was just too weak to
put up a fight.
Respect your elders. Do as your told.
Your parents know what is best for you.
Money does not grow on trees.
This is your destiny.
Divorce is a sin.
The rules I was given and felt forced to live by.
The secret I keep is tearing me apart.
Loving him, as I always have, how can it be so wrong?
Wanting him, needing him, craving him.
My love for him above all.
You see, he is not the man I married.
I made a terrible mistake.
I did not listen to my heart
and now, this is the secret I keep.
