CHRISTINA AGUILERA - I'm Ok

rate me

Once upon a time there was a girl<br>In her early years she had to learn<br>How to grow up living in a war that she called home<br>Never know just where to turn for shelter from the storm<br>Hurt me to see the pain across my mother's face<br>Everytime my father's fist would put her in her place<br>Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room<br>Hoping it would be over soon<br><br>Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same<br>And I still remember how you kept me so afraid<br>Strength is my mother for all the love she gave<br>Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday<br>And I'm ok<br><br>I often wonder why I carry all this guilt<br>When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I've built<br>Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door<br>The echo of a broken child screaming please no more<br>Daddy, don't you understand the damage you have done<br>To you it's just a memory, but for me it still lives on<br><br>Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same<br>And I still remember how you kept me so, so afraid<br>Strength is my mother for all the love she gave<br>Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday<br><br>It's not so easy to forget<br>All the lines you left along her neck<br>When I was thrown against cold stairs<br>And every day I'm afraid to come home<br>In fear of what I might see there<br><br>Bruises fade father but the pain remains the same<br>And I still remember how you kept me so afraid<br>Strength is my mother for all the love she gave<br>Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday<br>And I'm ok<br>I'm ok
