Monster From Michigan

A Deep Song

You took away my self confidence.  

You took away what I had left of innocence, 

I cried and I begged for you to stop.  

I screamed and you finally let me drop. 

But the damage had been done. 

Come to find out months later I'm not the only one, 

I said no. 

Oh,  oh. 

Why did you have to do that to me? 

I fell in love with a monster. 

I guess it wasn't meant to be. 

I gave u love but now I'm afraid of what I've become. 

I'm shattered like broken glass that's lying on the floor. 

I want to be the one, 

 I want to be the girl, 

That despite all odds I move on with the rest of the world. 

Now its your turn, 

Justice will be served. 

I can't believe I missed you when you went back to Michigan, 

It was like I was battered,  

At first it didn't matter,

Because I loved you more and more but let's be honest it was me you'd just ignore. 

Now that four letter word that I wish someone heard the one I cried out loud. 

Oh,  somebody help me. 

I'm in need of therapy, 

God give me strength to go on,  and on. 

I will fight like Hell, 

I will rebel,  

You are not going to get me now. 

I am safe you are far from this place. 

I escaped and even though you were on top, 

It is over now.  

I'm fighting like a boss. 

Life in prison? 

Life is your loss.
