The day you start to doubt it
Is the day you don't get through
He doesn't want to talk about it
Says, “It feels so good just to be with you”
All this time, it's still on your mind
You've got to learn to have faith sometimes
Careful now, when the truth comes out
You'll be gone—you're the one he depends on

Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else

Drive into the darkness
The night stretches out ahead
The truth hits you the hardest
All you should have done, all you should have said
The more he hears, the more he tries
Keep your secret safe inside
He can't help what he's become
And now you're gone—you're the one he depends one

Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else

Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Tess, don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
Shh…don't tell
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else

It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
It's just for you; it's not for anybody else
