Coward Who Cries

by Mehkare Skye

I wish I had the power to hide from you,
I wish I had the chance to run away,
It's not that I don't love you at all,
It's that you mean the world to me,
And when you said "I love you, dear"
I started to feel all of the fear,

And I wish I could come right back,
To tell you the truth that I had,
But I know I made a great mistake,
I should of never done that to you...

I wish there was a way out of here,
I wish there was a choice,
A choice that could keep you safe,
And live a perfect life,

And I wish I had the voice to tell you,
I wish I had the courage to move on,
It's not that I'm nervous or scared,
It's that I'm full of deception,

And when you said "I care for you"
I started to feel so guilty,
And I wish I could never come back,
I wish I could be free,
But I know I made a great mistake,
I should of never done that to you...

Because I'm a coward who cries,
And tries to tell myself that I don't despise,
What we have is mostly a lie,
Because I'm a coward who lied to you,

(Oh oh oh hey hey)

Oh I lied to you,
And I cried myself to sleep again,
Oh I'm so ashamed,
And I wrote my name for you to keep,

I wish I never told you that,
But you were so happy,
Nervous at first and at last you smiled,
And I faked one for awhile,

'Cause I'm a coward that lied to you,
I thought it would be safer,
Then telling you I never loved you,
I would be in dark place,
I would never want to ever hurt you,
But now I see that's all I did,
Now I see that's all I did.
