We've always been the very best of friends,
And I told her all of my secret stuff,
Private matters she promised to defend,
And I thought that her promise was enough.
She knows that my life has been pretty tough,
And I thought that she understood the need
To keep to herself the parts that were rough;
That's the arrangement to which we agreed.
But apparently trust is too hard to heed,
For she spilled to someone she barely knows,
Dug up and told what in her I'd buried,
So now she must reap what it is she sews.
My closest friend has become a stranger; ...
Dark things lurk in the dark;
They come out to play at night.
But I don't hide myself from them
Even though the monsters can bite.
Becasue, really, I'm not afraid of the night.
The darkness can be fixed with a flashlight.
I'm afraid of waking up in the morning
And having to go out into the daylight.
