"Sad Happy" as written by and Ronald Ward....
She was only 17
And forced to blame it on herself
That she hides away to tame the pain she feels
She was fallen to a scene
A drunken man a violent will
And the God that makes mistakes
And still pretends

And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away
And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away

She was only trying to breath
Her broken nails had sliced his skin
As he bruised her face she fades away again
When she came to at the scene
A fever wind and a match in hand
As she watched the flames she felt love again

And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away
And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away

Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Can you feel?

And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away
And I'll be strong
And I will say
And I will take your pain away

Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Can you feel?

    General CommentThis is a very scary thing... and I relate because something like this happens to me. Not that I've been in an abusive relationship but I often end up in some volatile ones.

    Sometimes you spend time with someone and all of a sudden you realize how much you've been living for them and how far away from yourself you actually are. That you've grown to adapt to their faults too much, to the point where it is harmful to you.

    I see this in this girl. How she has ended up in this abusive relationship but when he beats her in his drunken stupor she gets the sense to burn him down. She has been numb for the time she has spent with him, but now she gains the sense to feel once again.

    General CommentThis song is about a young girl that is badly abused by a man close to her..But basically, she gets fed up with the abuse, so she lit a match.. and sets the house on fire.In the end, she can finally feel love again.

    General Commentamazingly it helped me get through something similar rubysoho.
    At firsfor i read ya'll posts i thought it was her dad who abused her but i was WRONG! It's just about being abused to the point that you just can't take it anymore so you show that person that hurt you how much it hurt.
    "that she hides away to tame the pain she feels" Perhaps this line means she cut herself trying to kill herself cause she couldn't take the pain anymore!

    General CommentThis song is actually about a young girl who wrote them a letter about how her dad had abused her a year or so back and their music was the only thing that got her through it. Scooter was so moved that he offered for her to go on a few stops of their self-titled tour with them. He wrote this song for her.
