Hurt

I will try not to cry.
I will do my best to
Make sure my eyes
Remain dry.
So, believe in me,
Please believe in me,
I won’t let you down,
I promise you I won’t get hurt.

I will try my best
To carry on,
To fill the void
That you have now left.
So, believe in me,
Please believe in me,
I won’t let you down,
I promise you I won’t get hurt.

When it all fades away,
I will not cry,
Not shed a tear,
I will try and remember your face.
So, believe in me,
Please believe in me,
I won’t let you down,
I promise you I won’t get hurt.

It makes no sense
Why you must go,
And I remain.
But I promised I wouldn’t cry.
I do my best
Now the time has come.
Promises I made are
Put to test.

So, please believe in me,
Believe in me,
Believe in me,
I won’t let you down,
I won’t let you down,
I won’t let you down.

Please,
Believe in me.
Believe me.
Because I won’t let you down.
And I promise I won’t get hurt.
