You fill me up, you let me down
And there is no other way to explain what I have found
Your eyes are dark and forbidden, your sweet soul I have forgiven
Listen to my call
You watch me as I fall
Louder and faster not knowing what's after
Listen to me fall

In the night you come after me as I sleep
Oh that night you came after what I planned to keep
Listen to my call
You watched me as I bawled
Louder and louder I can't help but cower
Listen to me fall

But you can make it up to me, And when I can't sleep
I watch you breathe and it all comes over me
But I know I can't leave you
Wondering what you'd do
Listen to me fall

I see the blood all over the floor, my legs covered in what was before
The life of our creation, now dated and gone
The life of our future I waited for so long
Listen to me fall

Wondering what smiles I have lost from being with you
Wondering for miles and not making sense of what I knew
Listen to me fall

Yet I still can't let go when I'm all you know
Listen to me fall

Listen to me fall

THIS IS ABOUT A STORY I READ. THERE WAS A GIRL IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP BUT EVERYTIME SHE TRIED TO LEAVE THE GUY WOULD HURT HIMSELF AND SHE FELT SHE COULDN'T LEAVE HIM LIKE THAT. SHE ALSO GOT PREGNANT BUT HAD A MISCARRIAGE AFTER HE BEAT HER REALLY BADLY. OH AND HE RAPED HER IN HIS SLEEP ONE NIGHT AND THE NEXT MORNING DIDN'T REMEMBER IT AT ALL. xox courtney
