Make You Whole

from by Lael Summer

lyrics

All the things she carried
no one should ever have to hold
and I think about her every single day

In her sleep she screams
but can't remember what she dreamed about
'cause in the morning
she'll be countin' sheep again

We're only as sick as the secrets we keep
and you've kept yours for a long long time

I'm so sorry
you were the pawn in their cruel games
and they kept you so afraid
I never had the chance to say
I'm so sorry
you were left with all the shame
and if I could I'd pick the pieces up for you
and make you whole

She looks at her reflection
and sees eyes that aren't hers
and her palms are bruised from pressin' them away

With no place else to go
and no one to hear her cry
she'd close her eyes and in her mind
take flight

We're only as sick as the secrets we keep
and you've kept yours for a long long time

I'm so sorry
you were the pawn in their cruel games
and they kept you so afraid
I never had the chance to say
I'm so sorry
you were left with all the shame
and if I could I'd pick the pieces up for you
and make you whole

Do you remember
all those nights we couldn't sleep
there were so many of them
we sang all the songs with words we couldn't speak
but i knew you were talkin'
think you knew that I was too

Do you remember
me

We're only as sick as the secrets we keep
and I wonder if you're doin' fine

I'm so sorry
you were the pawn in their cruel games
and they kept you so afraid
I never had the chance to say
I'm so sorry
you were left with all the shame
and if I could I'd pick the pieces up for you
and make you whole

All the things she carried
no one should ever have to hold
and I think about her every single day
