I picked up after the second ring
my parents probably never
heard a thing
I asked you how your evening went
and let you change the subject
you said he passed out an hour ago
made subtle mention of a
bloody nose
then a foreign voice said
we weren't alone
and I heard it all when
you dropped the phone

it's all happening again
all I want to do
is make it end
but you made me swear to you
nobody would ever know the truth

and it seemed on every next day
I could only wipe the tears away
and listen as I held you tight
recount the horrors of
the previous night

I could never
understand the pain
never understood why you
felt ashamed
over things you could never control
the pain in your eyes
is all I know

I just wanted
to take you away

because I swear there's
a better life
swear to you there's
a better life
