Status: Finished  |  Genre: Song Lyrics  |  House: Booksie Classic

False apologies,
Angry yelling,
Countless excuses,
Those were all I ever heard from you.
[Verse I]
You shouldn’t call yourself a parent
When I drown in tears
Because of you, when I see you
My heart races with fear.
[Pre chorus]
Always say you’re sorry,
But you’re sorry for yourself.
Say you’re broken,
But you don’t seek help.
Caim that this is all gonna be good for myself,
But all you ever did for me was put me through hell.
Counting days until I’ll get out
Of this prison that you call a house.
You think I’m weak and I’ll still beg to stay,
But all I want is to get out, escape.
Once I’m free, I’m not coming back,
Once I’m free, I’m not looking back.
[Verse II]
You’ve never once told me that I’m good enough,
You put me down yet you still call it love.
You’ve never left me with a memory
Where you’re not shouting, faking an apology.
[Pre chorus]
Because of you, I cry in my sleep.
Because of you, I flinch when they speak.
Because of you, I feel like I’m weak,
Because of you, I’ve been pushed to the peak.
Our house is not a place
That I can call my home.
Because home shouldn’t be a place
You don’t want to go,
Being with you, I’d rather be all alone.
Family shouldn’t be someone
You don’t want to know,
Family shouldn’t be someone
You want to let go.

Woah! A perspective of family in the other side? That was a good description! (For me, Yeah)
