Can't Be Free

Can't hide

Can't find a way

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't lie

Can't be me

Never know what love is

Never know where to go

Everywhere I turn

Everything is gray

But you only see the black

The darkness where you've trapped me

Taken my voice and my freedom

Never, never ever let me know

There's only one way I can escape

And that's through denial

That's through destruction

I need her more each day

In the depths of my soul

I'm capable of this love

You believe I deny myself

Never, never ever let me go

Can't hide

Can't find a way

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't lie

Can't be me

Nothing quite makes sense

Nothing ever does

Every pain it brings upon me

Every word I'll never say

The times she watches me

Without a dose of understanding

It's in these cold times

That I tell these cold lies

What would freedom achieve

What good is an open door

When there's nothing on the other side

Hated for the love I feel

Which will amount to nothing

And all for her I feel this way

No one will ever understand

That I love who she is

Can't hide

Can't find a way

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't lie

Can't be me

The religious forgive everyone

Still shut me out

The ones who ask if I'm okay

Would leave me if they knew

The "liberals" that tolerate me

Only do it for their pride

The few who truly care

I continue to tell lies

Can't hide

Can't find a way

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't deny

Can't be free

Can't lie

Can't be me
