Looking past
The weight of words not taken to heart
It seemed so safe and innocent to start
But now I'm on the outside looking in
Won't let this example go to waste
Let's not lay the blame
On those who spoke their minds in vain
Better to take a stand
On what you've been holding in your hands
I regret
Holding my tongue when I felt so right
Not letting my true colors come to light
There's a chance that someone's holding that in too
I swore that I would never cheapen this to you
There's a time and a place
When you have to save face
A time to stay clear of what you hold dear and face what you fear
And I've held back when opinions not shared
So I just kept it all in
But something's got to move
To prove I care
