I'll never tell you what I saw
Or how it made me breathe.
I'll never repeat what I heard
How long it took me to leave.
I'll never tell you what I saw
Or how it made my smile freeze
Cause this world is a whirlwind, but I'm holding that trapeze
And I'll never tell you what I saw

I'll never tell you who I loved
Or how they made me free
I'll never tell you how I slept
Back when I was fifteen
I thought that I could just forget
The bricks that have built me
But this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze
And I'll never tell you who I loved

But if I could tell you one thing
I would tell you I'm not leaving
If I could show you one thing
All my mistakes have shaped me
Into who I am
And who I am just wants to make you home

I'll never tell you why I drive
Into the night and back again
I hardly speak of my hometown
My little hands in the cement
I'll never tell you what I saw, close the door, swallow the key
But this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze
Ya this world keeps on turning, love is carried in a sling
Ya this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze.
So I'll never tell you what I saw
