Every time you look at your face - you'll remember me

Scarred for life, neva to be erased - yeah!  Remember me

My face in your mind will forever remain - cuz you'll remember me

You'll never live your life the same - but you'll rememb er me

You should have never laid your hands on me - cuz now you'll forever remember me!

 

I told you that if you ever put your hands on me you better kill me

Cuz if you didn't I'd be back to get you back.  What?  you didn't believe me?

I should have seen it from the start - But you hid it well, looking real good and acting real smart

Every time there was something we couldn't agree on - You were slamming doors, getting in your car and you were gone

Coming home at all hours of the night - Waking me up talking s**t always starting a fight

I wouldn't say anything - just sat back and let you vent - I knew you had been drinking - I knew that you were bent

Avoiding scenes - avoiding any kind of drama - Getting on the phone crying to my momma

I should have listened to her - she was always right - She told me to pack my s**t and leave you one night

But I stayed strong hoping that you would change - Alot of time went by and s**t remained the same

And the more time that went on by - the more you started showing that other side....

You went from slamming doors to punching holes in the walls - I guess it made you feel like you had the  biggest balls

Breaking s**t I worked hard for - Calling me names and treating me like a whore

Going out - staying gone for days at a time - Then coming home searching to see what you'd find

Accusing me of f***ing around on you - Accusing me of s**t that you knew YOU would do

I would cry and asked you to please change - You said you would - but you stayed the same

 

On your birthday I tried once more - I bought you a gift, some balloons, and a cake from the store

I cooked dinner to eat by candle light - I wanted it to be perfect - I wanted everything to be right

I went outside to see if you had arrived - I saw the neighbor and stopped to say 'Hi'

I told him to have a nice day and shook his hand - that's when you rolled up and the s**t began

You stormed by and went inside - I could tell you were trippin and I wanted to hide

I walked in to find dinner on the floor - As soon as I walked in you slammed the door

You asked why I was talking to the neighbor - Accused me of doing him some sexual favors

I told you to stop, shut up and strop trippin' - That's what did it - that's when you started hittin'

Pushed me back and banged my head on the wall - Then pulled me in our room - pushed me and made me fall

I was scared and started to scream - I was in a daze - couldn't believe you could be that mean

You put one hand over my mouth and one around my throat - I could feel all five of your fingers as you began to choke

Still holding my neck you started punching my face - you scarred me for life - they can never be erased

You knocked me out - that's when you got scared - Called 9-1-1 andn told them that's how you found me there

They came and got me and when I came to - The only one there with me was you

You asked me what happend to see what I'd say - I said I had no recollection of what happend that day

But I did remember, I remembered quite clearly - I was just thinking of what your consequences would be

 

I cam home to find that you re-did everything I did - Dinner was on the table and the candles were lit

I sat there with a blank stare - didn't touch a thing - you got down on your knee and pulled out a ring

No expression on my face - I couldn't believe you - After what you had done you expected me to say yes to you?

You sid your speech - slipped the ring on my finger - I didn't say a word - Whatever it was you said not a word was heard

After dinner you took a shower and laid in the bed - I was still at the table with all kinds of s**t running through my head

I got up - looked in a mirror - I couldn't believe what I saw - Face all f***ed up like I had been in an all out brawl

I went to the closet and pulled out a bat - I knew exactly what I was about to do with that

I stood above you for an hour while you slept - until I felt it was time for you to pay your debt

Aimed at your face I swung that b*tch with all I had - Split your s**t open!  That s**t was bleeding bad!

"WAKE UP MUTHA F**A!  IT AIN'T NO DREAM!  NOW IT'S MY TURN!  YOUR TURN TO SCREAM!"

You sat up quick holding your head - I hit you again and watched as your nose bled

"I TOLD YOU MUTHA F**A YOU SHOULDA KILLED ME WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE!

CUZ NOW WE'RE PLAYING MY SONG AND I WANNA DANCE!"

All f*cked up  you started to beg - but it all stopped with one last blow to your head

I packed up my s**t and went home to my  mom - I'm glad it's over now - from my life you're gone

I'm at peace knowing that every time you look at your face - you'll remember me and feel the disgrace

you should have believe me when I told you - Now you see I wasn't bulls**ting - what I said was true.

Now...

Every time you look at your face - you'll remember me

Scarred for life, neva to be erased - yeah! Remember me

My face in your mind will forever remain - cuz you'll remember me

You'll never live your life the same - but you'll rememb er me

You should have never laid your hands on me - cuz now you'll forever remember me!
