Once apona time there was a girl,
In her early years she had to learn
How to grow up living in a war that she called home
Never knew just where to turn for shelter from the storm
It hurt me to see the pain accross my mother's face
Everytime my father's fist would put her in her place
Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room
Hoping it would be over soon.
Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept us so afriad
Strenght is my mother and all the love she gave
And every morning that I wake I look back on yesterday
And I'm OK
I often wonder why I carry all this guilt
When it's you that's helped me put up all these walls I've built
Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door
Echoes of a broken child screaming please no more
Daddy don't you understand the damage you have done
For you it's just a memory but for me it still lives on.
It's not so easy to forget
All the marks you left along her kneck
When I was thrown against cold stairs
And everyday afraid to come home in fear of what I might see next.
