She was confused and abused in this life
Emotional and violent moments Seemed to take the longest time

Every single knockout drag out fight they ever had
He starts to laugh, he starts to lie
With suddenly psychotic eyes

Every night she cried herself to sleep she didn't recognize
Her own face in the mirror
Black and blue
So afraid, intimidation, like a child she hides away
He would always try to justify
What wasn't true

Justified black eye

Taken for granted she sleeps by the phone
Waiting for a call from him
Seems he's never coming home

Fourteen beers later he is there without an answer
Once again she questions his lies
Goes to bed with no reply

Tomorrow morning different story and he'll be a different guy
He'll justify her black eye
With another lie.

She packs her bags in great temptation
He's on his knees again he cries
A hug and a kiss and I don't know why
As a tear drops from her swollen eye
Apologies until tonight and then another...

Justified black eye
