you said you loved me.
i believed it,
you said i was yours,
you made think it.

you cut me off from my family,
like i couldn't think for myself,
and they were no help.

you raised your voice,
far to many times,
yet i shrugged it off.

you slowly wrangled me away from my friends,
but i couldn't see it.

you said you loved me,
i believed it.
you said i was yours,
you made me think it.

you secluded me from the world,
forever i had been victimized of your voice,
now it was hands,
then it went to fists,
why couldn't I saee it.
why did they let me go with you.

you said you loved me,
i believed it.
you said i was yours,
you made me think it.
why did YOU abuse ME?
why did I lose ME?
