She tries for the honesty but the truth gets in the way
Cause I know inside what she can't bring herself to say
There's something dying deep in her heart I feel it when I touch her hand
So I tell her a lie when I tell her I understand
But inside I die a little each day inside I feel her slipping away
Inside if she knew I hurt this way inside she'd find a reason to stay
And so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside
She turns to look at me trying to speak her mind
A thousand reasons in search of a single rhyme
And suddenly it occurs to me she's trying to say goodbye
So I give her a smile and tell her that I'll be alright
Oh but inside I die a little each day...
Sometimes love will slip away it's hard to say just why
Is it something that's said or is it instead something that just simply dies
Inside if she knew I hurt this way...
