Ronnie Milsap – Inside Lyrics

She tries for the honesty but the truth just gets in the way
‘Cause I know inside what she can’t bring herself to say
There’s something dying deep in her heart
I feel it when I touch her hand
So I tell her a lie when I tell her I understand.

But inside I die a little each day
Inside I feel her slipping away
Inside if she knew that I hurt this way
Inside she’d find a reason to stay
And so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

She turns to look at me trying to speak her mind
A thousand reasons in search of a single rhyme
And suddenly it occurs to me she’s trying to say goodbye
So I give her a smile and tell her that I’ll be alright.
Ooooh

But inside I die a little each day
Inside I feel her slipping away
Inside if she knew that I hurt this way
Inside she’d find a reason to stay
And so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

Sometimes love will slip away it’s hard to say just why
Is it something that’s said or is it in-stead
Something that just simply died key change.

But inside I die a little each day
Inside I feel her slipping away
Inside if she knew that I hurt this way
Inside she’d find a reason to stay
And so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

Inside
Inside if she knew that I hurt this way
Inside she’d find a reason to stay
And so I must keep this broken heart down deep inside.

Oooooh, inside, inside…
