Do you understand me?

I don’t understand you

Do you understand me?

Tears stream down my face

Screams rip from my throat

Bitter resentment claws through my chest

As I watch the liquor slide down your neck

Do you understand me then?

 

Blood flows from my temple

Mixing with the salt water

That has stained my cheeks

Pain and Agony pulls me to my knees

As you plunge the knife

Up through my ribs

Do you understand me then?

 

You do not.

I know that now

I am no longer four years old

So sweet beloved Father

Pick up the bottle

Take another swig

Throw another punch

Launch another kick

For now I know

You don’t understand me

But I understand you

 

My Girl

What happened to us

We use to be so close

In the next room, but still so far

I guess this is how it goes

I was never good enough for you

I should have known that was true

You use to say your little girl

Was your whole world

But now I'm just a crack in the street

Nothing for you to think

Of, because it's like I'm nothing to you

How could you

Treat me this way

Then the next day act like everything's okay

Will it ever be the same

It's not fair to me

But you can't see 

What you do

But know I will always love you
