lyrics

her backs against the wall
she's losing will to live
she swear shed end it all
but won’t because her kids
can’t make it on their own
with such a hateful man
with no place to go
she prays with weathered hands

and she wonders
how'd it come to this

who she fell in love with
is no longer known
just an empty shell
in a loveless home
he’s reaching for the bottle
she knows of what’s to come
she knows what’s bound to follow
but this time she had enough

although the answer lies right beyond her door
she’s still doubtful of what’s in store

her backs against the wall
she's losing will to live
she swear shed end it all
but won’t because her kids
can’t make it on their own
with such a hateful man
with no place to go
she prays with weathered hands

she’s bled her options dry
its either fight or flight
she holds onto her dreams
he holds his liquor tight
and keeps his demons close
present in all their lives
acquainted with his seeds
familiar with his wife

he’s just a coward
projecting a lack of worth
a fraction of a man
ignoring those he’s hurt

when will this end x3
it won’t happen again

she followed fragments
trailing a broken home
pieced together
with weary bones
she’s so afraid
she can’t make it on her own
at least she knows
that she’s not alone x2

she knows she’s not alone x3
