Keep me a secret

So tell me why you've come here to bend and break
I know that you have made the same mistake
Just shut your eyes to leave this world of sound
That's floating away and I don't know why

You keep yourself so tightly wound it's about time you break
It's not enough, my foolish words will never

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom

I have always been the same
You know that I will clean up your mistake
Just tell me you found a way to stop believing
Everything you say is a lie

You keep yourself so tightly wound it's about time you break
But it's not enough, my foolish words will never

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom

I never had the faith to pick myself up
Calm down and take me
I never had the faith to pick myself up
Breathe in, breathe out
Like a magnet, you keep pulling me closer
Wanted it all to end like this
I was stagnant, then you entered my life
And held it in your hands

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom

Is this the end of ourselves?
Is this the end?

    My OpinionNo he says, "I want it all to end like this"

    How has no one written anything about this song? It's amazing. I really want to know what it's about.
    The first thing I thought of was a love affair. And possibly coming from the person who is sleeping with the other person that's cheating on their partner. Not sure. I don't think it is, but thats the first thing that came to mine, hence the, "Keep me a secret.."

    Hopefully we get more replies on here soon.

    Well done Saosin ♥

    General Commentsounds like a relationship breaking down because one person is sealing themselves shut emotionally.. the other person is trying to find a way in but fails and begins to realise the relationship isn't gonna work.. 'is this the end of ourselves, is this the end of us?'
