"Never Again" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
He's drunk again, it's time to fight
She must have done something wrong tonight
The living room becomes a boxing ring
It's time to run when you see him clenching his hands
She's just a woman, never again

I hear her scream from down the hall
Amazing she can even talk at all
She cries to me go back to bed
I'm terrified that she'll wind up dead in his hands
She's just a woman, never again

Been there before but not like this
Seen it before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again

Just tell the nurse you slipped and fell
It starts to sting as it starts to swell
She looks at you, she wants the truth
It's right out there in the waiting room with those hands
Lookin' just as sweet as he can, never again

Seen it before but not like this
Been there before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again
Never again

Father's a name you haven't earned yet
You're just a child with a temper
Haven't you heard don't hit a lady
Kickin' your a** would be a pleasure

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
Same old s***, just on a different night
She grabs the gun, she's had enough
Tonight she'll find out how f***in' tough is this man
Pulls the trigger fast as she can, never again

Seen it before but not like this
Been there before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again

Seen it before but not like this
Been there before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again
Never again
Never again
Never again

    General CommentFather's a name you haven't earned yet
    You're just a child with a temper
    Haven't you heard "Don't hit a lady"?
    Kickin' your ass would be a pleasure

    General CommentDomestic violence. Nickelback really has an interisting choice of themes. I think it's really good they chose this one, though. The only part that I don't get is when he says "She's just a women". Does he mean that because she is a women she shouldn't go through such things? Cause that wouldn't fit, usually it's the male partner that beats his wife up. Does anyone has ideas about that one?

    General Commenti've been there, i can remember the first time my mom sent me back to bed, and i thought she'd be dead by next morning, and i'd still like to put a bulllet through my stepdad's head.

    General Commentright on jacgrrl! the song talks about an abusive husband who liked to drink. his poor wife got smacked often and she tried to protect the kid by sending him/her to the room. finally the wife had it and blew the husband away with a gun. i think she should've just divorced him!

    General CommentWhile I haven't actually heard this song (yet), the words cause this image in my head resembling the video to "Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks. My own situation has been fairly decent, hubby knows better than to lay a hand on me. NO one, man or woman deserves to be beaten.. But tell me, what kind of a song would this have made if it just ended in divorce? Needed the extra impact.. can't wait to hear it set to music.. =)

    General CommentThis song is great. I heard it once when a friend played the cd and I just had to look up the lyrics. Although I have never been put through this type of situation (thankfully), I have seen the effects which it has...My father had a druken and abusive father, he died when my father was only 15. Although I never met him, I do see the effects that this one person has had on an entire family...So if your ever in this situation please talk to someone, don't be to scared to stand up for you rights and get outta there!

    General CommentThis song hits extremely close to home with me. I was adopted when I was two years because my abusive father was a little too abusive one dark fall night in '78. I consider myself to be lucky, given that I was spared the influences of alcoholism by my biological parents due to my father's death and my mother's imprisonment. Anyway, this song is my life in a nutshell.

    General Commentthis song is just so great. i mean, you can feel the hate for the father, and chad sings it with such emotion that you just find it raising your blood pressure. Thankfully this has never happened to me, and i thing that she was right o shoot the bastard. people like that shouldn't be allowed to live.
