Tonight she cries herself to sleep
on a pillow made of dreams
That she has denied
A whisper made, black candlelight
As she stares at scars from the night
How did this become her life?

I'll try and keep your secret safely forgotten

Your sanctuary has begun to show me
All your life misleading
All your constant sorrow
Still all alone

I'll try and keep your secret safely forgotten

Lying awake brings no relief
Just like the sun drains through the sheets
She only knows to hide
too far away to hear the screams, of a little girl as she pleads
'Oh god, just let me die'

I'll try and keep your secret safely forgotten

Your sanctuary has begun to show me
All your life misleading
All your constant sorrow
Still all alone

Just one more day, to show you all i've changed
please take me back, home
Been gone so long, oh mother please
Again on my knees, oh help me please
