I told you
Just because I had to
I told you
And only you
I told you
The one thing I was scared to say
I was scared that you would leave me
Just like my family did
I told you
The truth
I told you
What my heart felt
I told you
My pain
But I told you what my heart felt
I told you
My pain
But I told you I was scared
And you told me why
I told you
That I love you
I told you
That you got my heart
I thought you would laugh
But you told me I love you too
I told you

The pain I hold
Is so big
That it hurt
I cry cause I know I’m not going 2 forget
I just can’t
They say u make me or break me
I can’t see what u did
I only see pain
I see year of question from the most innocent thing in the world
What if the baby one day asks for his dad
The pain I hold
I don’t want u to hold your innocent and I don’t want to cause you pain
I love you more than I love life itself
I hope you make it and show what of a great person you are to dad
Show dad that u will not die
That you don’t need him
They say the big pain is a lesson learn
What lesson u learn
I just want to be love not hurt
Why did you come for this
I love u and I can’t change that
I hope one day I could move on
I just know that you give me the greatest gift in life
To bring an innocent child into this world
To bring love in
But I know I will not forget
The touch you gave me
The kiss
The love you had
The pain I hold
Is so big
I can’t forgive u
Not this time
I just will say I love u and that one day I
Will be the great person in that innocent life and maybe u will be too
The pain I hold
Is so big that I cry
I just want u
The pain I hold you will hold
The pain I hold
Is a pain cuz I don’t have it no more

 

 

That day
That I wish had never happened
That day was a lie
That day was a day I wish never happened
That day was the day my pain started
That day was the day I meet my mama and dad
That day was the first day I started
That day
That day was the day I became someone
That day was just a day
That day is what made me
That day is what I wish never had happened
That day could have been different
That day was what made me who I am
That day is what I wish I could change
Only if u knew that day
That day
