IYou don't know how you hurt me a minute back there,
You have no idea how for a moment, the pain laid my soul bare.
I wish I could rave and rant,
But seeing the obliviousness on your face, I just can't.
It would shock you, I believe,
And you simply couldn't perceive,
What you did to make me feel like that.
Your shock would make me feel like a total rat.
You're my best friend; I know you better than anyone on earth.
I've seen you in tears and helpless with mirth.
But you don't know that you're my best friend too.
You can't know what I accidentally gave you the power to do.
You wouldn't purposely use the ability to hurt me,
But my pain is something only I can see.
I never let any of my friends see so much of who I really am,
But you're such a sweet girl, and gentle as a lamb.
I've always been a secret, a mystery,
And no one ever had the sense not to flee.
I'm afraid that if I stay, I'll learn to need your company,
And I'll be afraid, if I go, of what I'll learn to be.
So I won't say a word to you,
About how I feel when you do what you do.
If you figure it out and ask about the pain, I won't pretend I don't care,
But unless you do, this is simply something I can and will bear.
