Lyrics

Safe is Not to Say a Word
(E.J. Geel)

Don't worry about me, it's nothing
I'm just myself, and I can't help it
What people say doesn't matter to me
For they only judge by what they see
And they don't even see

A little beneath the surface
Well, if they would they'd see a likeness
We're all so afraid to come down from our thrones
And yet so afraid to be alone

Safe is not to say a word
That way you won't say a lie
Safer is to say that it is all absurd
That I should laugh instead of cry

Oh, don't worry about me, it's nothing
It's just a phase I'm in, I'll break it
But should I deny what I truly feel?
It's just too much to conceal
A chance for me to be real

(solo)

Safe is not to say a word
That way you won't say a lie
Safer is to say that it is all absurd
That I should laugh instead of cry

Oh, don't worry about me, it's nothing
I'm just a fool, and ain't that something
Soon you'll become a remote little star
But no matter where you are
Here's where I am
In trouble, but you see
That's me
