You show your fear
You show the anger
But you don’t show the love
I sit back and wait for this to end
Stop the bruises
Stop the lies
Don’t become a monster
Hidden by the mask you are another
Coming home with your best friend alcohol
You show your hatred to the world
When will I hear?
When will you say?
The words of love
I’m hidden behind the person you become
I’m surrounded by fear
I can’t go back and I can’t move on
I will forever be trapped
With the animal you had become
Only one question
Only your answer
Can set me free
Where has the love gone?
