She wanders through the sea of stars,
drowning in the silence,
asking questions, untold answers,
searching for reliance.


You may scream, but I withstand.
I’ll never forget when you raised your hand.
I count the scars, the welts, the bruises,
I count all you’re pathetic excuses.
And when I’m finished, I can see right through you’re mask of lies,
And when I’m finished, I can see the man inside.
You’re just as alone as you’ve made me,
You’re hollow and hurt, but you’ll never be free.

So you hit me now, you hit me hard.
At the end of the day, you leave me scarred.
But I’ll heal eventually; you never will.
And now you must ask: was it worth the thrill?
Can you live with yourself after breaking me?
Have you had enough to stop and see—
You can hurt me, but you’ll never heal.
All you’ve accomplished is to conceal.
So go ahead darling, hit me today,
Tomorrow I’ll be stronger, tomorrow you’ll pay
For everything you’ve ruined and everything you’ve done,
And in the end, everyone will know I’ve won.

Thank you so much. Its always touching to hear comments such as yours. I really appreciate it. Glad you liked my song.

I actually performed it live once, with a band from my hometown who wrote music to go along with it. When something like that happens, it really helps to write it down and express your anger and pain in a healthy way.
