What We Never Said

Closed Lips

What we never said kept us awake through solemn nights
What we never said, it nearly killed us from the inside out
What we never said broke us up in the midst of our fights 
What we never said made us so terribly mad, no doubt 

What we never said brought us down to our knees 
What we never said declared that we never really cared 
What we never said led to those around us crying out pleas 
What we never said, it was all out of fear, for we never dared

What we never said we sure wish we would have spoken then
What we never said, it all fills us to the brim with regret  
What we never said, could there have been a true way to win?
What we never said years and years later we continue to fret  

What we never said, our silence was truly a terrible sin 
What we never said, that stillness broke hearts beyond repair 
What we never said, was foolishness, thus we cannot pretend 
What we never said was never righteous or quite frankly fair
