Fighting Back

by Alex Carter

Laugh with our friends

Say that i fell

Teach me what to say

How to hide the marks.

Lips so soft at first

To touch is to be blessed

Now drip with pure poison

And spit words of spite.

The gentle touch

You once had

Now turns to fists and feet

This is the beginning of my bittersweet defeat.

Give me something worth living for

All i'll give you the reasons i'm fighting for

Tell me something,show that you care

Lie to me, tell me you love me.

Pick me up off the floor

Sweep away the broken glass

Help me clean the cuts

Just say that you love me.

Hold me close

Keep me warm

Say i'm safe

Don't push me again.

Give me something worth living for

All i'll give you the reasons i'm fighting for

Tell me something,show that you care

Lie to me, tell me you love me.

Let go of me

Your hurting me

Why can't you just dry my tears

I love you, can't you see?

Give me something worth living for

All i'll give you the reasons i'm fighting for

Tell me something,show that you care

Lie to me, tell me you love me.

I can't take this anymore

You can't do this

I'm standing up

I'm fighting back.

Laughed with our friends

Said that i fell

Taught me what to say

Just a little too well.

Suspicion rose

Tell the truth

I'm standing up, nows the time

I'm free, you can't hurt me.

Anymore.
