I let you in, for I told you

A secret that’s close to my heart

You passed it on, without a thought

Now a careless rumour is sprung


I gave a piece, a part of me

That I hadn’t dared share before

And you turned your back, callously

What a ripe mess now has begun


I’ll sit in silence, soul speechless

Reeling with deep shock from it all

Dreaming that I could rewind time

Forget, so I may trust again
