On My Own

  • He looks at me like I'm an easy snatch Like mamma bird waitin for her egg to hatch Gonna pick me up and take me home? I'll just fly off on my own, On my own, On my own. He asks me if I need a ride I tell him no, and he steps off to the side He watches me a little too closely My gut is telling me to run free On my own, On my own, On my own. I get a call later in the night My heart beats, a rabbit runnin with fright I hear his voice on the other end "Turn around" I have to save myself from him On my own, On my own, On my own. I bite and kick I try to make him go He presses on I couldn't fight him off On my own, On my own, On my own. My eyes water as he presses me down I can't even cover my ears from the sound My body trembles as he overpowers me I hope it's a bad dream and I'm really On my own, On my own, On my own. The next day I see a reflection of a shell He got what he wanted, I'm living in a hell My eyes black and blue instead of olive green A wild animal, that man was so mean I'm still on my own, On my own, On my own. I can barely move, no reason more to live Except for the one whose life he did give I look into my baby's face every day And love it with the hate of what he did to me I'm not really on my own, On my own, On my own. I keep going on, hoping for brighter days Money is a myth, I can't even buy empty space I can't support the one who needs it most I've been fading ever since her birth I'm on my own, On my own, On my own. I have nightmares of that night, I often Awaken screaming in pure fright He took something exclusive to me Was it my dignity or sanity? I'll plow on, still on my own, On my own, On my own. She comes home from school day by day Asking why daddy has gone away I just tell her that he had things to do I don't know that I can ever tell her what's true I'm raising her on my own, On my own, On my own
