Please Don’t Tell Him the Truth

Tell him that you won’t be coming home tonight

Tell him that the bruises on his face are his fault

Tell him not to make you angry

Tell him that you love him

But please don’t tell him the truth

Don’t tell him that you hate him

Don’t tell that he deserves better than you

Don’t tell him that you are broken

That you heart no longer knows what warmth is

Don’t tell that the bottle is your only friend

Tell him that you are getting help

Tell him that you won’t hit him again

Tell him all the lies you can

But please don’t tell him the truth

Don’t tell him that there is no redemption for you

Don’t tell him that the nights are cold without him

Bleed

Break his heart

But please don’t tell him the truth
