Dodging family members, trying to keep it to myself.
Afraid someone would find out my secret.
My boss keep calling me in, but he can't see, the secret that I hold between you and me.
Not a soul, friends, or family can see the secret the we keep.
Smiling for the camera, hurting on the inside.
Afraid of being alone, so you stick by his side.
The fear and control was what he had over you, you was his slave, he was your master.
Wondering why your life had to be a disaster.
