"I can't be myself"

Mon, 01/27/2014 - 21:37 -- oliviah

"You are nothing but what you want to be"

And what I want to be I must conceal

I must hide

Keep it secret

Sweep it beneath the rug

Never to see the light of day

Put it under lock and key

Bury it in the backyard

They can't know

They must never know

No, no, no

It's my burden

My curse

To love another girl
