You'll Never Understand Me

You’ll never understand me like I do,
You’ll always put me down and I do
Put myself down and surrender,
Soft skin, your touch is tender
On mine, I close my eyes to
Stop tears that I’ll be crying later
Hands on hips, I look into your eyes of disappointment,
Magically I move towards you and forget all the torment
You put upon my shoulders until today,
Words lodged in my throat, what do I say?
Your hand is rising; I already know what’s coming,
Helpless I try saving myself, ‘’I’m sorry!’’
Hand hard on my cheek, the heat is rising,
Before you and I know it, I’m crying,
My knees give in and I fall to the floor,
The dreams and hopes I had have all gone,
You’ve dug a hole in my heart,
Drilled right through to the core,
Your hand is heavy on my arm,
I close my eyes to the pain,
I’m thinking to myself, ‘’are you insane?’’
The answer makes me want to smile,
But to do that I’ve got to wait a while,
A while that will turn into a year,
One thing I’ve told myself is, ‘’life’s unfair’’,
But this? This is something else,
Where the hell do I go to get help?
You’re lifting me up and holding me against the wall,
Being a short person, for once I feel tall,
Go ahead and give it your best shot,
The atmosphere is really getting hot,
I don’t care what you do now,
After this performance you can bow
To me, I’ll add this to the other beatings,
After all I’m nobody – I’m nothing,
What the heck does love mean?
Now I’m wondering ‘’shall I scream?’’
Your punch has really made me bleed,
I have to take this because of your own greed?
No, not the stomach…please!
Hurry up and put my mind at ease!
You had all day, why now?!
Why are you always putting me down?
This will take all night I can see,
So I’m closing up, you won’t be hearing from me,
Like I said at the beginning,
You’ll never understand me like I do,
I’ve replaced your lies with MY truth…
