can i tell you my secrets

Written by: trina aiken

can i tell you my secret?
a secret so sad that your eyes fill
and you start to cry
a secret so sad that you

could never imagine
can i tell you my secret?
a secret so horrible that it makes you
want to die

a secret so horrible that 
you quiver in fear
can i tell you my secret?
a secret of happiness

a happiness that never ends
can i tell you my secret?
a secret of betrayal that cuts 
you so deep it will never heal

can i tell you my secret?
a secret of love and pain that 
if i tell you my heart has been hurt and beats no more
you are willing to give me yours 

so will you keep all my secrets?
these secrets i hold dear
will you lock them away never to be heard?
to only you i whisper these secrets

i ask you now once more
can i tell you my secrets?
