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
