look me in the eyes and see the pain
take off your shirt, on top of me
again i took my eyes off of my morals
look at me like thats all im good for
and dont bother looking up as i walk away.

baby...i would do anything for you
why do you have to make me cry?
honey...i give you everything i am
why do you have to be so mean?
i reach out just for you to glare me away.

shoot me a text, saying i am so stupid
take your pride and just go crush it
knock me down, saying its all my fault
get your head straight and get some help
becuase i may be bent but i am not broken.

and this is the last time i let you scream at me
this is the last time i say i will not leave
i am giving you a chance to change yourself
but i will not stay and pretend to be someone else.
this is the last time i let you in again.

This is great. It really hits home for me - having dealt with a lot of the guys in my family being abusive, and watching the way our society treats women, despite the fact that I've never been in a romantic relationship I can still really relate. The only line that I would change is "why do you have to be so mean?" - maybe is there another way or word to get the same point across? You've got awesome rhythm all throughout but right there it breaks a little. But that's the only thing I noticed. Beautiful work. :)

that was very deep and the way the mood shifts. first your weak but in the end your strong. and the words flow pretty well too. i enjoyed it :)
