We weren't afraid to face the world but we couldn't tell a child

I'm glad that I have told you all about her
(And I told you about him without a doubt)
Our cheating's reached the point it's breaking up our home
And there's one who's got to know that we've left out

How can you tell a child you don't love his mommie
(If I say I don't look back would you realize)
We didn't care who knew about the way we live
We weren't afraid to face the world but we couldn't tell a child

We've known for so long our love was over
But there's one thing that we've just pushed aside
We couldn't tell the one that needed most to know
We weren't afraid to face the world but we couldn't tell a child
We weren't afraid to face the world but we couldn't tell a child
