The Days Still Yet to Come    

The Days Still Yet to Come
Words & Music by Steve Siler

I stuffed my feelings in a secret place
Locked them up and threw away the key
Built and barrier inside my heart
and shut out what I didn’t want to see
But the truth keeps on dripping like water
and it has an unquenchable thirst
You can’t hold it back forever
You’ll drown or the damn will burst

So I will tell my story
Share the shame that I’ve been running from
I’ll grow and learn, try to be a better man
and let it change the days still yet to come

No more living with remorse and regret
I’m unpacking all the guilt and the shame
Silence is no substitute for strength
and nobody wins when I hold on to pain
It’s time to let the light shine in the darkness
and speak all the things that I feel
Once I can really be honest
Then there is hope I can heal
I will tell my story
Bring the truth out into the sun
I’ll grow and learn, try to be a better man
and let it change the days still yet to come
These words might be what someone else needs
For me, what they mean
Is maybe now I can be free

So I will tell my story
Even though it’s hard to admit
Until I acknowledge what happened
I won’t make peace or find forgiveness
I know that I can’t change what came before
Yesterday can never be undone
I’ll grow and learn, try and be a better man
and let it change the days still yet to come
No longer will I hide
I will honor my child’s life
and let it change the days still yet to come
and let it change the days
The days still yet to come
