Innocence lost (original version)

I was stuck in a painful reality
When you came and said you could save me
You told me I could trust you
My heart was broken inside
I needed to escape the wounds in my mind

At first I was terrified of the feelings
But I thought it was love and love was what I needed
Only now do I feel sick
And see past your lives
Now I know what it is to despise

You told me the pain would go away
I am still hurting from what you did in those days
I begged to become numb, to stop feeling, to die
Anything to cast the emptiness aside

Now I am covered by those scars
Ashamed because of you, and marred
I just want to love, to be held
Trust now has different connotations
Thanks for destroying me as a child
