I'm OK (remade by me)



Once upon a time there was a girl
In her teenage years she had to learn
How to grow up living in a hell that she called home
Never knew just where to turn for shelter from the storm
It hurt me to see the pain across my fathers face
Every time her mothers words would put him in his place
Hearing all the yelling she would cry in her room
Hoping it would be over soon

Words fade mother but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
Strength is my father for all the love he gave
And every morning that I wake I look back at yesterday
And I'm OK<



I often wonder why I carry all this guilt
When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I've built
Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door
The echoes of a broken man screaming please no more
Mother don't you understand the damage you have done
For you it's just a memory but for me it still lives on

Words fade mother but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
Strength is my father for all the love he gave
And every morning that I wake I look back at yesterday
And I'm OK


It's not so easy to forget, all the sadness you left in his eyes
When he was told that you hated us all
And everyday afraid to come home in fear of what he might see fall

Words fade mother but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
Strength is my father for all the love he gave
And every morning that I wake I look back at yesterday
And I'm OK
