Why Do You Love Me?

As I fight through my mind
I have to wonder why
You say you love me.
You don’t know where I’ve been
Or the pain I hold within my mind.
I can’t explain these things to you
But I hold you in my heart.
I horde so many things I can’t share
And yet you love me anyway.
Is it my soul you see through my eyes
Or my heart that you know with yours
Why do you love me?
If I could show you why I’m so scared
This would be easier…I have to know
Are you going to hurt me, lie to me?
Will you betray me, and hide things
And claim it was all an accident?
I have loved deeply and lost regrettably,
So many tears have fallen needlessly
On my pillow I’ve cried too many times
If this is your game, let me go
I will go quietly, silently, sadly
But let my heart break now, don’t wait…
And spare me sweet dignity.
