Child, come, tell me your secrets
You can trust little old me
I would never hurt or harm you
My pages are blank, can't you see
That I am an open book, no preconceived notions
You won't be overlooked by me
Just call me diary

You don't know the name that's on my front cover
But don't let that fool you, I am a friend, and
Don't you listen to that advice from your father
My brain is concealed, but your heart's in my hands
I am an open book, though you might not remember
Who you are when you are with me

I'm gonna set you free
Only you know how you feel
No deciding what isn't real
Pick up a pen and we'll go through this together
Just until I can find someone better

You can't recall what you've been doin'
But my dear, that's no fault of mine
People do some crazy things
When their lives are on the line
Maybe you don't realize but you've given me a voice
Don't look so appalled, child, it was all your choice

I am free, I'm free, I'm free, you set me free
But I'm just a diary
