"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt


You saw his fist fly
You saw the mark swollen on her face
But you turn your head
And close your eyes

You hear the way he talks to her
Every cruel word you know he means
All the names he is so sure she deserves
But he is just a coward behind what he seems

She only shows anger
So that you can’t see the pain
But she won’t last much longer
You still do nothing because you’re afraid

You’re scared of change
Afraid of him
You don’t want to take the blame
Her light now is so dim

But you refuse to help
Even though she needs you
You’re too worried about yourself
Still you know exactly what you should do
