street lights set the mood tonight
it's cold outside
but the winter is warmer then what I leave behind
two feet will carry me
a backpack of broken dreams
down the road of recovery
my clothes are containing every bruise
my broken bones have done their best to heal through
he's so sorry
he's always sorry

when he takes it out on me
violence the language he speaks
when he lays his hands on me
I can't breathe
he tried to take everything
gotta work with what's left of me

how do you hurt someone you've held so close?
how do heal the one you've hurt the most?
you don't
I'm through waiting for a change
I'll be better on my own
I can't bring back the girl I used to be
lead astray
she lost her way
somewhere in between the love, the hate
the promises we break
I think about her everyday
her memory will stand by me
an angel only I can feel
there's nothing left to say
I've made mistakes
but I won't go out this way

I will build a new foundation
one of love and dedication
a place that feels like home
that's all I ever wanted
