It wouldn't do well
for you to see
the scars they left
on the inside of me
So God made it secret
a place we don't go
and only my now grateful smile
can show


I don't want to say
what I'd say to the one
who caused me the pain
who pulled out his gun
who stood next to me
and killed for his way
I don't want to tell you
all that I'd say


You're here,
not another ~
you're mine
and not they
who wounded my soul
and stole years away.
And I'll never tell you
what you didn't do
to hurt your own wife
who loves you so true .
