“Tucked” by Scott Sparks

Gotta go through it to get to whatever’s next
Gotta grow and let it show the effort in your pocket’s spent
Keep emotions tucked in but don’t deny them
Admittedly, their trickery can open doors to dead ends
The way I see it, not everyone should see them
For how many of those care enough to come close, my friend?
Where do your memories take you when the door closes?
Do they move you miles from sleep or help you regain your focus?
Keep them tucked in but don’t deny them
Own what you’ve grown in soil you’ve dug so deep in
The way I see it, not everyone will see them
Just be thoughtful you were part of something worth sinking your teeth in
Gotta go through it because there’s never a detour
Love’s ingrained in every season, you can best be sure
The way I see it, not everyone’s going to see them
Gotta grow and let show but keep them tucked in
