    She lost her dad at an early age
    He drowned in a sea of alcohol
    she held it in , the burning rage
    "you'll see I'll show them all".

    Mom was cruel in her lonliness
    so she took it out on her only daughter
    "your flesh is all they want" she stressed
    Men are evil was her alma mater.

    This girl grew up , she studied so hard
    missed out on comraderie and innocent love
    her true feelings she kept well guarded
    tried and tried to pretend there were no scars.

    Worked all the time , paid her way through school
    in her JR. year met a guy that really cared
    with him she discovered the tools
    to open doors she'd never dared.

    First friends then lovers, falling head over heels
    they both had addictions but learned along the way
    He asked her to marry him , good times they'd steal
    He thought he could heal her with the sun's rays.

    They had kids, life would never be the same
    He was estatic, scared..she was along for the ride
    their histories repeated, the old ghosts came
    then she stumbled on her foolish pride.

    Using him for his weaknesses, he needed her so
    both in perpetual cycles of selfishness
    the winds of change and destruction did blow
    living through death he grew, he progressed.

    It was a trick she thought she'd use for defense
    depriving him of real love and companionship
    He wanted and needed to make sense
    but was stuck inside her financial grip.

    When he was used up she threw him to the street
    he was still blind to the things she'd done
    from the bottom he overcame her defeat
    He'd lost it all yet still he had won.

    She tossed him away, but didnt understand
    this new guy that she'd done this for
    was only her idea of what made up a man
    he uses her, she'd been better being a whore.

    She uses her kids as pawns, still seeking revenge
    thinking she should be some country queen
    ever making mistakes, her liquor soul drenched
    with two beautiful children stuck in between.
