Sometimes it's better not to speak
The things we love the most will be the things that make us weak
I've been told that silence is golden
But when I'm with you in this silence all my closed wounds reopen

So tell me what's on your mind
And I promise you to let you know what's on mine
If only you'd open your heart to me
But your silence tells me everything

You're holding back secrets in your dark place
Blending them in to the plastic smile on your face
And I'm waiting for your confession
But all I see is your blurred reflection
Is it so much when the truth is all I ask
If promises were mirrors we'd be walking on broken glass

Sometimes it's better just to lie
The things we hold the closest are the hardest to say goodbye
I've been told that the truth is hard
But when all is said and done will it be the truth that leaves us scarred

So tell me what's on your mind
And I promise you to let you know what's on mine
If only you'd open your heart to me
But your silence tells me everything

You're holding back secrets in your dark place
Blending them in to the plastic smile on your face
And I'm waiting for your confession
But all I see is your blurred reflection
Is it so much when the truth is all I ask
If promises were mirrors we'd be walking on broken glass

And if I lied I'll make it up to you
I promise on my life but that doesn't make it true
And when you lie I can see just what this is
A million shattered pieces of our broken promises
