What we’ve been through tonight was painful
And though we’ve taken back these wounding words we said
You have some questions that remain still
Are there angry thoughts that linger in my head

You are safe in how I think about you
You could walk my secret passageways and find
There is no pain that still needs cleansing
You are safe in the hallways of my mind.

I think it’s true in times of anger
Even when we can hold our bitter tongues
It’s in our heads there lies the danger
Silent hurtful thoughts are where the harm is done


One thing for sure I’ve learned from living
Is that I’m the one who makes my own cold hell
When I refuse to be forgiving
Oh the damage done is mostly to myself
