I Bleed – I Scream – I Pray!

Pray

Darkness is the enemy
When I’m lying in our bed
A Sadness, I’ve never known before
Is our one and only thread.
Was she worth all of my pain?
Was she worth all of these tears?
Did laying in that woman’s arms
Give you peace and calm your fears?

Don’t put your arms around me, Baby
No – It won’t be okay
The pain cuts like barbed wire
I bleed – I scream – I pray.
Can you feel my pain, Love?
Does it make you weak?
Did she get you off like I do?
Did she use the same technique?

Are you satisfied, Sweetheart?
Do you have any regrets?
I lay my soul before you
It’s as fragile as it gets.
The emptiness inside of me—
Will this feeling go away?
Does it hurt to say goodbye to me?
See what happens when you play?

Don’t put your arms around me, Baby
No – It won’t be okay.
The pain cuts like barbed wire
I bleed – I scream – I pray.
Can you feel my pain, Love?
Does it make you weak?
Did she get you off like I do?
Did she use the same technique?

My thoughts overwhelmed by emotions
It’s hard sometimes to breathe.
Are you looking for forgiveness?
Are you looking for reprieve?
Our dancing days are over now
No more late night melodies.
I never did give up on you,
I merely set you free.

Don’t put your arms around me, Baby
No – It won’t be okay.
The pain cuts like barbed wire
I bleed – I scream – I pray.
Can you feel my pain, Love?
Does it make you weak?
Did she get you off like I do?
Did she use the same technique?

Please God, help me with the anger, take away the pain. Give him back his freedom, take away the shame.
