as i carved a heart into my arm
i carved your name underneath that
your name will forever be on my arm
so i can remember thr pain we went through togeather
From the moment we met
Something felt right
You’ve been here through my problems
You have never once let me down
A baby sitter who can’t stand kids
A drunken father slaps his children around
A drug addict mother who sleeps and does nothing but get high
A sister who never comes home in time to protect the small ones
God’s watching over me like a dove
He see's that I’m in search of love.
Then he would find a smart and handsome guy
To send to me … and I would give him the world.
If my tears could dissolve all the pain in the world
My eyes would be wet all the time
If I could take a mothers pain away for the loss of her child
I would take all her pain away
On this planet where crying abounds
I can? t wish you joy and no sorrow,
But I can wish you hope as you pass through those times
That you wake to a brighter tomorrow.
i stood there as my walls of rock fell
these walls fell because i was sad and lonley
i built those walls cuz i wanted protection
they stayed up till he showed up again
I lie awake at night
And converse with the darkness.
We discuss many things,
The blackness and I.
I lay on my bed trying to sleep
But sleep refused to come
My thoughts were on you and what I had done
You were no longer with me because I killed you
