ABIDE

by Eric Morris

I cannot tell you of my fears

Won’t let you see me drown in tears

That’s just not the man that you need me to be

Got to keep it all within

Hide my sorrow, force a grin

Keep my demons appeased, hope that you never see

The darkness in me

I can’t abide

By this feeling inside

Because if I did you wouldn’t see me the same

So I’ll continue to hide

Watch as my innocence dies

You’ll thank me later ’cause my loss is your gain

My life is pain

I try to keep it locked away

Do what I must to make you stay

But I can’t hold back the darkness anymore

I’ve lost sight of what is true

I swear I did it all for you

But you’re closing the door, what was it all for?

Love nevermore

I can’t abide

By this feeling inside

Because if I did you wouldn’t see me the same

So I’ll continue the lie

Don’t know why I even try

You’ll hate me later, and I’ll take all the blame

My life is shame

My thoughts are locked inside this cage

Your life has turned another page

There is no reason you should ever think of me

I’ve fallen deep inside my mind

Emotions dead, consciousness blind

Pray to God set me free, these devils won’t let me be

Too late for me

I can’t abide

By this feeling inside

Because if I did you wouldn’t see me the same

I couldn’t deny

The lure of my foolish pride

You’ll find out later, my life is lived in chains

‘Twas all in vain
