She seemed so happy but she was dead inside
She’d cover her scars and disguise her bruises
Every tear, a different story
Not one person cared cos they never knew

her body was aching she wished to let go
She looked at her children how could she go
How could she leave them she told herself no,

I have to stay, they have to be safe
pretend everything is okay
She put on her brave face and started her day

Hopeful for a better life
She’ll have to forget you
and recreate the years spent wasted on him

Would you please just hold on
Hold on for me
Forget everything, just focus your mind
everything will be just fine

I wish it were easy for me to say sorry
I was young, I could do nothing
It plays in my mind, I should have done something
The thought of your pain, as he screamed your name
I wanted to run I wish you’d do the same

I have to stay, she has to be safe
I have to pretend everything is okay
I put on a brave face and started my day

He destroyed her
I tried my best
the pieces so fragile
But I can’t give in
I can’t let him win
I can’t watch my mother die from within
She cries on my shoulder her tears will soak in
I need to grow faster I have to stop him

She’ll stay here for me and she let herself free
she free from the heartache that sent her crazy

She’ll stay here for me and she let herself free
All I ever needed was you
