I want to say so much more than what I've said
But words won't come and my mouth's sewn shut
I can't help but hold it in
I want to tell you all the things I wish I did
But I'm scared that you won't care
I know it doesn't matter anyway you put it
The right shoe goes on the right foot
And my nightmares are for real
My heart is old and broken
My mouth's sewn shut
I long to tell you all the things you'll never know
But I don't know what to say
I just don't know how to put it
It hurts me so, to keep it shut within
To keep it locked away
But that's the way it is
And that's the way it has to be
I guess
