Time and time again
you've put me through h*** and pain,
now i must forget your face
and try to erase your name.

I must go to a better place
where i can find some prayer,
a place that i can call my home
where there are people that care.

Help me on this journey
if you feel thats what you should do,
just remember along the way
Im here because of you.
