Why Don't You Speak?
Madison MacDonald
 
Why Don't You Speak?

 

why don't you Speak?

sharing is the key for us,

i mean me, myself.

i'm not the quiet type

i Speak my mind

Why Can't You Do The Same?

i reflect my insecurities into

Your Silence, Your Silence

makes me see all that is wrong,

wrong with myself, with you

i love you, i

Think That I Do.

but when the silence overtakes

our time, i begin to worry that

I Am Not Good Enough.

but when you do speak,

of Me, of Us,

I know how you feel

even when you do not Speak.
