how many slaps across the face does it take
for you to realize he's a fake
take the kids && leave, mom. he doesn't love you
but you choose to have another drink, denying what is true
i'm not running away from it
but i'm saving myself
can you blame me for leaving?
it's all on me, and no one else
&& what about you leaning on me?
i was just a little girl
grow up, mom, come on...
this is the real world
when he holds a knife to your throat
&& has you up against the wall
you cant expect us to save you
because we know he'll kill us all
all those nights you'd come home fighting
&& you wonder why i hate you?
think about what you did to us..
you should hate yourself too.
so did you ever really love me?
because i once loved you
he's made you bleed && you still love him more
&& you know thats true
but guess what, mom, i'm happier now
i'm never going back
&& i promise you that
