When Words Fail – Victim Of My Mind lyrics

I've got a secret and
It's taking over me
But I can't tell a soul,
I can't let anyone see
That I'm going crazy and
I can't even admit
To myself that I have this
Terrible secret

I'm a victim of my own mind
And there's two people inside
One's an angel, one's a devil
Neither one is on my level
The devil says to run to you
The angel warns stay away
And here I am, just trapped inside,
A victim of my own mind

I wish that I could tell you
What is on my mind
But that secret could destroy us and
It wouldn't be too kind
This is the kind of secret
That could ruin lives
And excuse me, but I'm
Just trying to survive


Some secrets are meant to be kept
Some things just aren't meant to be
And if I told you, I fear you won't accept
That's why this secret is only meant for me
