How long until the pain goes away

How long until the pain stops

I feel this pain everyday

I guess for the pain to go away I have to bring in the cops

If that doesn't work I don't know what will

I can try and take you on

But I'm afraid that you're not afraid to kill

Battered and bruised on and on

Time after time

Bump after bump

Why do you repeat this hurtful crime

Instead of I love you and a sweet soft kiss I get shut up and a lump

I beg you to stop hitting me repeatedly

The more I beg the harder you hit my helpless body

Can't you see what your harmful impact does to me

Why can't you stop being a drunk and start acting like you should around me
