Mum Stop

I smell the whisky from your'e breath
Mum stop its bringing me to my death
You hit me and call me names
Mum stop, i'm sick of playing these games

One day its going to get worse
Mum stop it please dont yell and curse
Mum stop it before its too late
Remember when this was the thing that you said you hate

For me you used to care
For me you used to be there
Now its eating you away
Mum stop its leading you astray

Bruises and hits
You start to get those fits
All this is causing you pain
Mum please dont hit me, I'm not the one to blame

I've cried, I've begged, what more do i do
Mum please stop and say I love you
Your'e drinking away whats left of you
Mum stop your'e hurting yourself and me, too

Its so hard when its me you have neglected
Mum stop all i ever want to be is accepted
I know i am not perfect but neither are you now
Mum, you've got to stop this somehow

Mum stop don't call me a whore
Look mum my hearts broken i'm lying on the floor
How much more of this can i take
Mum stop and give me a break

You brought me into this life
Mum stop put away the knife
Are you going to take me out to
Mum stop don't make this come true
