I got home from work early
Put the dinner on the stove
Longing for the “I love you’s”
You’d whisper when we were alone
I yearn for the yesterdays
When I was your prize
You’d walk me around
With your big dreams in your eyes
With a big house and a family
A family with three kids
You’d always take care of me
Promised all the love you could give
These bruises get easier to hide
They barely even enter my mind
But the way you look at me
And the sound of your voice
Rips me apart
Leaves me feeling cold and alone
Even when you’re by my side
I caught myself thinking today
About the first time I really cried
You made me feel like nothing at all
When you laughed at what I said
It’s always the same old fight
I guess you got tired of pointing out my flaws
You said you’d had enough of this
To find my own way home
I remember that long walk home
Convinced myself it wouldn’t happen again
Hoping each set of headlights were yours
You haven’t come for me yet
These bruises get easier to hide
They barely even enter my mind
But the way you look at me
And the sound of your voice
Rips me apart
Leaves me feeling cold and alone
Even when you’re by my side
I woke up tonight in the dark
You’re lying there next to me
I’ll get up and do it all again
I won’t feel anything anymore
These bruises get easier to hide
They barely even enter my mind
But the way you look at me
And the sound of your voice
Rips me apart
Leaves me feeling cold and alone
Even when you’re by my side
