don't say those words / by Ellen Sorensen

don't say those words

the ones that kill me and kill you

you yelled out to me


i don't trust myself

i'm over it

i'm leaving 

i don't need anyone 

i can do it alone 


and i don't believe you

maybe you need time 

maybe you want to be alone for a while

maybe you don't trust anyone right now


but when you call me 

from hundreds of miles away

and i hear the hurt and the tears 

stuck in your throat 


i can't let you

i won't let you 

give up
