Bloody battles
Blood-curdling screams
Writing on the wall
What does it all mean?
I loved you
I thought you loved me
Is this the way love should be?
Sweaters cover my black and blue bruises
My glasses hide my tear-streaked face
I feel like crap, like the scum of the earth
You've made me feel so ashamed
Love should be flowers
Long walks on the beach
Not me trying to get out of your reach
Love should be like magic
Mysterious and amazing
Not hateful eyes, not angry gazing
Love shouldn't be a battle
Shouldn't be a fight
I shouldn't be afraid
To turn of the lights.....
