You don't know I know

Through all the lies and treachery

Do you not think I deserve to know?

You, who I entrust my hope upon

And you, whom I talk to ever so often

Tell me

Before I find out from someone else

Tell me

Before it all invades my mind and thoughts

I know you don’t mean harm

But the act of not telling me

Breaks me open

I can’t tell you

Because you do not know that I know

I can’t tell you

Because you are making all the wrong choices

I can’t tell you

Because right now

You need me to be there for you

So I will swallow my pride

And I won’t say anything

About the thing

That you don’t know I know
