He used to be so gentle
Now it’s really pitiful
A man so desired
To put his hands on another, he should be fired
I used to think i’d never be in this place
Sitting on my couch as a kid trying to relate
Trying to understand how a man had such power
Tried hiding to cry in my shower
But now my screams are louder
I won’t let him overpower
It was young love
I thought it was true love
But now I gotta dispose of this ‘true love’ and find a new love
I thought it was going to be okay, I tried not to cry everyday
I thought his control showed his love but now I know jealousy wasn't made from the above
He’s just a coward
