It's a Boy

I was not lying when I did not tell
When we were dating
When we got married
I could not tell myself

I was not lying when I did not tell
That there was more to the story
Cause I did not have the words

But it hurt me bad when you asked
If I'd been tested before we met
Because I played the only role I knew
With other boys like me
The submissive, but with mutuality
Unlike what was done to me
It's okay to find the faith to saunter forward
With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you'll breathe easier just knowing
that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night
have set you on dry land
