Why do we feel we have to be quiet?
Ashamed of what others have done
As if somehow it is our own fault
As if it is we who are the dirty ones.
And so we smile and go on our way
Hiding the hurt that lives deep inside
Quashing our tears, the depth of our pain
If we show what we feel we get smashed again
We know so much pain we can take no more
It’s best it is hidden within our hearts
No one shall see what is hidden within
And we almost burst with the strain
Oh how strong we must be to go on
Telling no one what we’re going through
Laughing and joking with the best of them
But inside the crying knows no bounds at all
What will be the ending of us?
How much more can our bodies take?
One day they will break like shattering glass
And they’ll lie on the ground in a million pieces
