Treasure Island

Do What He Do

when he call me out my name, he be so mean
when he talk about a change, he stays the same

Something's wrong, feel it in my heart
he'd put his hands on me, rip my lip apart
can't deny it, friends say i'm not smart
what exactly is wrong with you?
how can you let him do that to you?
when there is something you can do

it's the love he has lost, but the words he'd say
it does come with a cost, don't want to throw it away
when he do what he do it isn't easy
to leave, he has this power over me
I still allow it to affect me mentally
i still allow it to affect me physically

Ran across a picture of us
i'm reminded to not give up
fallen out of love, don't want it to be true
because i am still very much attached to
the feelings of being in love
or what i believe it to be
the reason it ain't easy
he holds control over me

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
