Because Of You

You took me to a paddock, and the darkness swelled,
you told me not to panic, and then you showed me hell.
I wanted to run away but, where could I go?
Felt like time never ends, I felt my fear grow.

My mum, made me, cry, and cry.
My dad, he'd fight, he'd fight, because of that night.

You think you gave the child I was some love,
but it wasn't!
You messed me up and so I locked myself,
in my own prison!
I was an outcast when I went to school,
because of you!
Crazy, smoking dope, alcohol, short fuse,
because of you!

Would I have turned out different, no stolen innocence?
If you never took me away, would I be a bit more sane?
Fare better in a crowd, could I stand being held?
Would this broken shell have grown up to take on the world?

I can't let go of it, let go of the past,
Did ya know the damage you did, was going to last.
I take tablets now, so I don't go psycho,
It's why I'm so run down, I just can't let go.

About this poem:
I haven't put any of my lyrics in verses, bridges, etc. because I didn't think people would really want to read the same part over and over again. Each of my lyrics I post is basically the two verses; the bridge/break, pre-chorus, post-chorus and the chorus each once.

I see I've turned into a bit of a serial poster so I'll give it a rest after this one.

Such a strong poem,
Dark and tormented. But you smile so brightly in your photo,

Strong words from a stronger Person.
Stay well bouquet hug

When something becomes an epidemic, soft words never do. Well, that's my opinion anyway.

Thank you for your kind words about my song.

Appreciated. daisy
