Broken By Desiree Cady

By Desiree Cady

I discovered long ago
I'm way too good at goodbyes
You ask me what is wrong, afraid to be hurt
I cover the truth with a lie

Let you see me shed a tear
You'll never get a chance
For too many before you sat it out
When it was their turn to dance

Open up, reveal my thoughts
Take a chance and let you in
That's not something I can do
For me, that would be a sin

Please understand that it's not you
It's not anything you've done
This is all about protecting me
For I am the only one

The only one to keep me safe
I need to be my own best friend
For when you decide to say goodbye
It'll only be me in the end
