Latent Lies

by Nikki Rice

O this constant guilt
Knots I can’t untie
Don’t know where I went wrong
When my silence turned to lies
Each quiet breath I take
Every moment I don’t speak
I’m holding back a truth
O to be so weak


If I could be anywhere right now
I'd be standing by your side
Holding hands and loving you
It'd be nice to feel so right

I want to tell the whole truth
Help me, show me how
And nothing but the truth
Help me tell you now
No more latent lies
Help me feel okay
I’m in love with you
That’s all I want to say



Author's Note: New song. More to come.
