She was confused and abused in this life
Emotional and violent moments
Seemed to take the longest time
Every single knockout dragout
Fight they ever had. Apologies and
Dignity denied 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 & 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 but it seems he's never
Coming home, 14 beers later
He is there without an answer
Once again she questions his
Lies he 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
& a kiss and a don't know why as
a tear drops from her swollen eye
Apologies until tonight and another
Justified black eye

    General CommentI guess it's not just about beating. It's about a girl who has a relationship with this stupid guy that doesn't care about her. I really do think about what's happening to the girl I like for the moment, she likes one of my friends and he treats her like shit sometimes, even if he does like her. And she's so naive so the guy can do whatever he wants, and then there is just a simple "I'm sorry", and she'll accept it and go on to the next problem. It sucks cuz I really know how I would treat her. Great song!
