My heart is beating your heart
I can feel your heart bruise
But love is a game
That you refuse to lose

You can't fool me with your smile
I can see the sadness in your eyes
Yeah they may be open
But their closed to the lies

You must be crazy
To think what I'm doing to you is alright
I know that every time your heart beats
The pain keeps you up all night

How do you sleep
Knowing that you will wake up to hell
How do you find the truth
In the lies that I tell

You must be crazy
To think what I'm doing to you is alright
I know that every time your heart beats
The pain keeps you up all night

When will you wake up?
(Please wake up)
When will you see?
(Open your eyes)
That violence isn’t love
And never will be




You are going to stop being crazy
What I am doing to you is not alright
The sun told me the moon said
You were up crying all night
You are going to stop being crazy
Because I am going to do what’s right
I am leaving you today
You can sleep well tonight


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this piece to speak to those teenagers who are in an abusive relationship with their boyfriend or girlfriend. Emotional and physical alike. Although this was written from the perspective of a guilty abuser I still hope those who have been abused or know someone who has will find the message in this song. Thanks for reading!
