Someday I'll remember
Someday when I'm free
I'll remember all the lies and hurt that you caused me.
I'm here thinking that you'll stop
And maybe you can change,
You'll never lay another hand on me
And stop your violent ways.
You used to be so good to me
And gave this love your all,
Things took a change when I was due
Last year but took a fall.
It was our first but he had died,
It devastated us both.
Then after that you took a drink
Each night or so I saw.
You blamed me and I took your blows
Thinking it was okay.
That you just needed time alone
And I was in your way.
I loved you with all my heart
And cried myself to sleep,
One day I took a razor blade and cut myself so deep.
You would have thought that after that
My veins would have been dried,
But it was he who killed me,
Did so with all his might.
Now I'm here with my child
In heaven up above,
I guess that's just the price to pay
Because I fell in love.
