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
